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.
