Return to the past at the 1840 Rendezvous & Spanish Colonial Art Market! Spend a day in the early West, with engaging and immersive fun for the whole family. Highly trained historic interpreters will show guests day-to-day skills from the 1840s, such as horse and mule packing; fire-starting; beadwork; sign language; blacksmithing; moccasin-making; arrow-making; wool processing; and more. Authentic Spanish Colonial artists demonstrate and sell their creations, including retablos, santos, jewelry, wheat applique, metalwork, weaving, and furniture. Additional activities include demonstrations with birds of prey, including the bald eagle, provided by Hawkquest; storytelling, live music and performances.
