Big Annual Events

New Mexico offers plenty of reasons to celebrate, ranging from a chile fest to an alien bash to a duck race. No place in the universe has a more beloved, and specific, local cuisine than New Mexico. It’s a land whose state question is “red or green (chile)?” Some of the most unique events, however, involve New Mexico's undeniable culture, such as Santa Fe's Indian and Spanish Markets, Native American dances at the pueblos, and the many fiestas held on town plazas throughout the state. Of course, one of our most picturesque events, the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, fills the sky with unforgettable beauty each October. Find your next great adventure now.
