Aficionados Speaker Series

Originating in 1984, The Hulbert Center Aficionados program is driven by a public interest in the American Southwest. The Aficionados welcome all who are eager to gain knowledge of the people, land, environment, arts, and anthropology that enrich this region. During each block at Colorado College, the Aficionados host a luncheon that includes a lecture by a speaker with expertise in an issue pertaining to the Southwest. While certainly not required, several Aficionados attendees are among the regular donors to Hulbert Center programs. All donations are tax exempt.

To make a reservation for any of the luncheons below, you can send an email or register here. Reservations are required the Friday before each luncheon.

For more information, call 719-389-6334.
