Hosted on the grounds of The Fort restaurant (19192 Hwy. 8, Morrison), Tesoro Cultural Center's Indian Market & Powwow is a yearly tribute to the American Indian tribes that shaped the cultural community of Old Bent's Fort, an important fur trading post that operated along the famous Santa Fe Trail in the 1830s. In celebration of early Southwestern history, Tesoro hosts nationally acclaimed artists, dancers and drum groups for an art-centered gathering, juried art show and two-day contest powwow, as well as educational and interactive exhibits on American Indian culture, for a fun-filled, family weekend.
The festivities will kick off with a Tesoro Member-exclusive Meet the Artists party on Friday, June 1. The Indian Market & Powwow on June 2 and 3 is open to the public; admission is $5 for adults, and free for children 12 and under.
