What is the Mancos BurroFest?
Burros have inspired artists since prehistoric times and have played an important role in Colorado’s mining history. In recognition of this, the Mancos Creative District (MCD) created BurroFest to spotlight the talents of both burros, their handlers, and area artists. The event opens at Boyle Park with a Grand Entry and a reading of each of the burro’s biographies. The obstacle course and costume competitions are followed by live burro art-making with 15 artists on Grand Avenue. Each artist has been previously paired with a burro partner and the pair is then featured in one of 15 canopies, making them available for live interaction, demonstrations, and conversations with the public.
