To commemorate its opening, the museum is hosting the Speakeasy Fundraiser on Saturday, March 12th. This event’s purpose is to bring the community for fun and entertainment while teaching locals about what the Western Slope was like a century ago.
A curator of history for the Museums of Western Colorado says events like these are fun and exciting, and she hopes this exhibit will give locals the opportunity to empathize with people of the past and keep their memory alive. If you got tickets for the event Saturday night, you could expect a live band, dancing, Poker, Blackjack, and a palm reader. But in order to enter the event, you must use the secret knock you were informed of after purchasing your ticket.
While this event is about bringing the Roaring 20’s to life for a night, the exhibit will keep the memory of the Grand Valley during the 1920’s alive for a long time to come. For more information on the museum and fundraiser go to the Museums of Western Colorado website.
