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.
