Francisco Fort Day

Francisco Fort Day is a celebration of the Francisco Fort Museum and the beginnings of La Veta, Colorado. Admission is free, and visitors are treated to special presentations.

This celebration is a day filled with fun activities for everyone, such as bed races, duck races, chicken drop, activities for kids, performers, and a craft and food market. Traditional art demonstrations include blacksmithing, baking, and wool spinning. Late night entertainment keeps the party going into the evening hours.

Francisco Fort Day happens each July. Check out our calendar for this year’s dates.
