It’s back to the bricks for the 2019 annual Santa Fe Trail Days Festival, which returns to the El Corazon de Trinidad Historic District this year after being held for several years at Trinidad’s Central Park. The festival will be held, beginning at 4 p.m. on Friday, June 28 and 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 29 and is sponsored by the Trinidad & Las Animas County Chamber of Commerce now in its 138th year of operation.

Live music will rock the crowds from 8 p.m. until midnight on both nights as the popular Cappton Reid Band takes the stage on Friday night, followed by the area-favorite Wiskey Creek on Saturday night. A beer garden will be available for thirsty celebrants along North Commercial Street by the new public restrooms. There will plenty of food, music and entertainment available at multiple venues throughout the downtown area, 

There will be plenty of fun to be had for kids of all ages at a variety of events including the Horse Shoe Tournament, Kiwanis duck race, Kids Field Day races, Phil Long’s Kid’s bike races and giveaways, the Folkloric de Pueblo Dancers, the Illusions Dance Studio dancers, the Car and Low Rider bike show, the SCFC Touch-a-Truck, the High Noon photographers’ shootout, the Kid’s Water fight, multiple vendors and much more.

TLACChamber member Linda Barron invited everyone to come to the festival and let the good times roll. “We’re delighted to be back in the downtown area this year, and there will be plenty of fun to be had for the whole family,” Barron said in a Friday, June 14 phone call. “The festival is a great event that’s designed to entertain the whole community and visitors from out of town. This is one of Trinidad’s biggest events of the year, and we want to invite everyone to join with us and have a great time.”

The Chamber wants to thank all of its many fine sponsors for their contributions to making the festival one of Trinidad’s most exciting summer events.
