Santa Fe Trail Association Symposium 2007

"Where the Mountain Branch crosses the Purgatoire"

Santa Fe Trail Association Symposium

September 27 - September 30, 2007

Become a Sponsor of Colorado's Most Historic Event

In the Fall of 1986, a group of professional historians and history enthusiasts organized the Santa Fe Trail Association at a weekend conference in Trinidad. During the weekend of September 27-30, 2007, the Santa Fe Trail Association will return to Trinidad for it's twelfth biennial Symposium. This year's Symposium will center its activities around presentations on the history, people and events of the Santa Fe Trail in the Trinidad- Raton Pass area though a series of lectures, tours, both within Trinidad itself and trail sites on the Mountain Branch. Planned are dinner events, entertainment, exhibits, booths and new this year, a Kids' Day at the Trinidad History Museum. The Planning committee for this Symposium has been working for over a year now to make this a successful experience for the participants and Trinidad residents. As in the past, 300-350 parties are expected to visit Trinidad for this event.

As a non profit organization, we are asking that you and your business consider becoming a Sponsoring Associate for this significant effort to promote the history of the Santa Fe Trail, its time and people in the Southern Colorado and Northern New Mexico area.
