SALIDA HERITAGE DAYS

Celebrating 140 Years

 

ALL ABOUT SALIDA HERITAGE DAYS

In 1880, the railroad arrived at a mostly empty patch of dusty land. In a few short years, Salida, Colorado became a regional economic force.  Join us for a three-day celebration of our 140th Anniversary.

Live music, speakers, films, and plenty of events jam this once-a-year commemoration of our fascinating past and rich history.
