Dear Friends of Tesoro Cultural Center,

I hope you are remaining healthy and safe as we continue to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic. As we continue to navigate these troubled times, we have had to make some very difficult decisions that affect all our programming and events throughout the remainder of 2020.

The following decisions have been made:

  • Spanish Colonial Art Market and Rendezvous – postponed until 2021
  • Farolito and Pinecone Ceremony – postponed until 2021
  • Member Only Holiday Auction and Costume Party – postponed until 2021
  • Las Posadas – postponed until 2021

As each of these events draws large numbers of guests and participants well beyond the numbers currently allowed, it is in the best interest of all those involved to wait until we can ensure the safety of staff, volunteers, and guests. Although we are vigilant about following the CDC recommendations on safe spacing, deep sanitizing, and employee health checks including temperature takes, we do not want to risk anyone’s well-being.

The Historic Lecture Series is still slated to run, but there will be restricted numbers and reservations required. Masks will be required at the various locations – Buck Recreational Center, Lone Tree Hub, History Colorado, and The Fort Restaurant. Some may be presented virtually, and the recorded lectures will be available.

The last two lectures of the 2019-2020 series have been rescheduled as follows:

Dr. Catharine Franklin: Much Ado About Custer: Rethinking the Indian Wars
Saturday, September 26, 2020 at the Lone Tree Hub 4:00 p.m.
Sunday, September 27, 2020 at: History Colorado 2:00 p.m.
The Fort Dinner Lecture 6:00 p.m. SOLD OUT 

Mr. John Steinle: The Great American Desert: Major Stephen Long’s Expedition of 1820
Saturday, October 10, 2020 at Buck Recreation Center 4:00 p.m.
Sunday, October 11, 2020 at: History Colorado 2:00 p.m.
The Fort Dinner Lecture 6:00 p.m. SOLD OUT

Please visit our Historic Lecture Series page to see the confirmed lecturers for the 2020-2021 season and stay tuned for additional information on the new 2020-2021 Series.

We sincerely hope that you will be able to join us for one of the free or ticketed lectures presented by outstanding academics and historians! Your continued support will help Tesoro survive the challenges that lay ahead. Let’s hope for a great 2021!

Warmest regards,
Holly Arnold Kinney

The Tesoro Cultural Center (Tesoro means “Treasure” in Spanish) is committed to protecting and making available to the community the artistic treasures of our American past. All Tesoro events are inspired by Colorado’s rich history and shared experiences with Southwest, Spanish, Mexican, Native American, African American and Early European cultures. From art and cuisine to historical re-enactments and music, Tesoro’s mission is to create community based events and educational outreach programs designed to enrich and celebrate our cultural heritage.
