FULL SCHEDULE  September 8 - 10, 2018


Let's hit the road - to celebrate Artocade, Rosh Hashanah, Havdalah, the Trinidad Lounge, CardangoTemple Aaron and weekend fun in Trinidad, Colorado!

(Kinda like a Jewish Mardi Gras – a big party before we have to get serious.)



We'll travel by caravan to the end of the Santa Fe Trail just in time for the weekend of the Artocade parade and Rodney's Cardango Gala (illuminated circus, funk band, samba, taiko, firecracker hat dance and of course, brilliantly eccentric art cars).



Temple Aaron will host us for a charming and lyrical pre-New Year meal with music and stories, and we'll welcome the moon and stars with a whiskey havdalah ceremony.


Perhaps we'll do a detour or two to see the cutting-edge projects on tap from our favorite historic preservationist as well as the Corazon de Trinidad Creative District.




For your convenience, you can also register for Rosh Hashanah services on Sept 9-10. If you will stay for services, you may want to take advantage of the package deal including two nights of discounted lodging at La Quinta. Detailed schedule is below.

Let's go!

A growing community within Colorado and surrounding states is actively campaigning to preserve the historic Temple Aaron of Trinidad, Colorado. The Temple Aaron campaign has met its initial goal to fund critical repairs, two-year operating expenses, and commission of a historic building assessment. A capital campaign will follow to secure an endowment for preservation in perpetuity. This success has been made possible by local temple leadership and congregation members, individuals and organizations throughout CO and NM, historic preservation societies, and others who are committed to preserving this unique and special landmark.
