The 2023 Comanchero Rendezvous was hosted June 10th at Comanchero Canyons Museum. 2023 is the 10 year anniversary of the museum's opening in Quitaque, Texas.

We thank the volunteers, visitors, and supporters who have helped us come this far.

There was a hamburger lunch at the museum along with an outdoor blacksmith presentation and an artifact identification table. Guests also viewed our collections of art, artifacts, weapons, and tools, learning more about local history.

Marisue Burleson Potts is the 2023 CCM Historical Hero Honoree and she gave a speech at the Rendezvous. You can read more about Marisue here.
