At the Chamizal Cultural Festival, the signature event for the Memorial, we share the story of this place along the Rio Grande through cultural demonstrations and activities that connect us all to the history and traditions of the people who have lived here. Listen to the tales told by native storytellers. Vibrate to the bright sound of a mariachi band. Catch the scent of leather when the vaquero shows you what it means to be a cowboy. Let the beauty of the Mata Ortiz pottery dazzle your eyes. Experience the traditions that have endured and come to love the distinct flavors of borderland culture.
