Meet mountain men and women during Tesoro event at The Fort

September 26, 2014

The 1830s was the decade of the mountain men and women, who made their living in the west through fur trapping and trading.

Walk among the re-creators from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Tesoro Cultural Center’s annual 1830s Rendezvous & Spanish Colonial Art Market at The Fort Restaurant, 19192 Colorado 8, Morrison.

Attendees will interact with the mountain men and women to discover a culture of storytelling and barter – from buckskins and trade silver to flintlock guns and beaver skin hats. Learn to throw a tomahawk, engage the kids with crafts and an old-fashioned taffy pull and check out the concessions. All proceeds benefit Tesoro’s educational programs.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information about Tesoro Cultural Center, visit
