Over a dozen professional Archeologists from both the U.S. and Mexico will be participating in this years fair, along with other various museums, land management agencies, and organizations. The event is free and visitors who participate in activities or engage in demonstations or displays to learn about Battlefield Archeology, Historic Archeology, or Prehistoric Archeology will earn a stamp in their event "Passport booklet". The visitor can cancel their passport booklet to receive an event T-shirt or childrens book on Archeology when they have earned at least six stamps.
