Arts, crafts and history will be served up at El Vado Day event

-A A +A

Piñon Ridge Crafters have joined with state parks volunteers to put on an event, the El Vado Day and Crafts Fair scheduled for Aug. 27 on the shore of El Vado Lake, a 17-mile drive west of Tierra Amarilla on Hwy. 112.
The Crafts Fair will run all day, featuring local handmade art ranging from paintings and jewelry to furniture making. The day’s program begins at 9 a.m. with the Butterfly Dancers from the Jicarilla Apache Nation.
The day is filled with programs highlighting everything from the history of the area’s sheepherding and weaving tradition, to the events leading to the establishment of the original village and its demise some years later.
Standing on the shore of the lake as it looks today, it takes a hefty imagination to picture the bustling activity and the dense unbroken pine forests that climbed the hills before the turn of the century.
The “company” town of El Vado was home to laborers employed in a huge sawmill operation that cleared the land of its vast ponderosa forest in just 13 years.
