Peñasco Multicultural Fair

On November 14 & 15, 1996, The Peñasco Spanish Club held a Multicultural Fair. The purpose of the fair was to educate the students and community about the diverse cultures in Northern New Mexico. Many students contributed projects to the event. These projects can be found in various places in the archive. The subjects which students used for their projects can be found in our listing "Possible Subjects for Archiving" under the Contribute heading.

We have made our notes on organizing a multicultural fair available,
in case you are interested in organizing one at your school.
