Poppies Fest Takes Over El Paso Museum of Archaeology this Saturday

Officials with the Museum of Archaeology are inviting the public to enjoy spring in the Franklin Mountains by attending the annual Poppies Fest at the museum grounds in Northeast El Paso.

“Poppies Fest provides the community with opportunities to learn about conservation and our environment while taking advantage of the natural beauty of El Paso’s Franklin Mountains,” said El Paso Museum of Archaeology Director Jeff Romney.

The 13th annual Poppy-centric celebration will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 23

Visitors can enjoy a variety of activities including live music, art vendors, educational exhibits and food vendors. The museum will host live archery demonstrations and inside, visitors can see 14,000 years of prehistory in El Paso, the greater Southwest, and northern Mexico. In addition, the National Border Patrol Museum will be open for visitors to learn about the history of the United States Border Patrol.

The Downtown Art and Farmers Market will move to the museum grounds for the festival; the Anthony Street location will be closed so market vendors can participate in Poppies Fest. Visitors will be able to see local artists and craftsmen.

Food trucks will be on hand to provide a variety of beverages and food.

Free Parking for Poppies Fest will be at El Paso Community College Transmountain Campus Lot B, and shuttle buses will be running from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Parking will not be allowed at the Museum of Archaeology or the Border Patrol Museum.

The annual Poppies Fest is presented as a partnership between the El Paso Museum of Archaeology, the Downtown Art and Farmers Market, and the National Border Patrol Museum.

For more information on the Poppy Fest, call the El Paso Museum of Archaeology at (915) 212-0421 or visit the museum’s website.
