“Vista Del Rio Archaeology Celebration”

October 19 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

On Saturday, October 19, 2024, join the fun at the “Vista Del Rio Archaeology Celebration” with free family activities! This event will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., at the City of Tucson’s Vista del Rio Cultural Resource Park, 7575 E. Desert Arbors St. (at Dos Hombres Road), Tucson.

This outdoor program features hands-on activities, demonstrations, and information to make people aware of an ancient village site in Tucson’s Vista del Rio Cultural Park where people lived between 1000 and 1150 CE. Adults and children, especially ages 6 to 12, can learn about people of the Hohokam archaeological culture who lived at Vista del Rio and elsewhere in southern Arizona through this Saturday’s activities along the park’s trails. There will be demonstrations of traditional Native American pottery-making and arrowhead-making plus opportunities to play traditional Native American games, grind corn using an ancient metate and mano, practice throwing a rabbit stick, and make your own hand-built pottery, stone-and-bead jewelry, split-twig-figurines, cordage, and dance rattles to take home.

No reservations are needed. For more information contact Old Pueblo Archaeology Center in Tucson at 520-798-1201 or info@oldpueblo.org. This event is sponsored by the Vista del Rio Residents Association and Old Pueblo Archaeology Center.
