The Friends of Coronado present our fun-filled annual celebration, Fiesta of Cultures, on Saturday, October 17, from 10:00 – 4:00. Come celebrate and enjoy the blending of of our local Pueblo, Hispanic, and Anglo cultures with music, dancing, ancient life-way demonstrations, and fine arts and crafts vendors for pre-holiday shopping. We will have an atl-atl throw, calf-roping game, and other craft activities for the kids, plus yummy refreshments.
Returning this year are the popular Buckarettes, “Spanish conquistadors,”, and mountain men who will share their adventures. You’ll enjoy watching blacksmiths, authentic pottery firing, weaving, and other life-way demonstrators / reinactors. Don’t forget to see the baby Alpaca! Our art gallery features a new video about our site as well as our early Native Easel Art exhibit. And if you have not been to our museum lately, you will want to see our beautifully updated exhibits! Tours of the ancient pueblo and the painted kiva will go on throughout the event.
It will be a fun day of arts and crafts, culture, entertainment, and so much more. Best of all, it’s a free day at our site! Come out and join us here at Coronado Historic Site!
