12th annual Poppy Festival happening this Saturday

It’s back, El Paso!

The El Paso Museum of Archaeology is inviting the public to the 12th annual Poppy Fest this Saturday, March, 31.

Spring in the Borderland brings thousands of Mexican poppies to the Franklin Mountains. The festival attracts thousands to the annual festival at the museum grounds.

“The Poppy 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.

Saturday’s event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be free parking at Cohen Stadium and shuttle buses will take visitors to the festival.

The festival will have a variety of activities including live music, art vendors, educational exhibits, nature tours and food vendors. Plus, hands-on activities from different community organizations including the El Paso Zoo and The Downtown Art and Farmers Market.

The Poppy Fest is presented by the El Paso Museum of Archaeology in partnership with the Franklin Mountains Wilderness Coalition, National Border Patrol Museum, and the Downtown Artist and Farmers Market.
