The Tesoro Cultural Center (Tesoro means "Treasure" in Spanish) is committed to protecting and making available to the community the artistic treasures of our American past. All Tesoro events are inspired by Colorado's rich history and shared experiences with Southwest, Spanish, Mexican, Native American, African American and Early European cultures. From Indian Market and Pow Wow to history lecture series and re-enactments, Tesoro's mission is to create community based events and educational outreach programs designed to enrich and celebrate our cultural heritage.
While visting the Tesoro Cultural Center, do not miss a chance to dine at The Fort, an Zagat-rated, award-winning restaurant in the same complex. The Fort is one of the nation's most recognized establishments and sells more buffalo steaks than any other independently owned restaurant in the country. Featuring fine beef, buffalo, game and seafood, The Fort's menu offers a tantalizing selection of old and new foods from the Early West.
