For 24 years, the Rio Grande Arts and Crafts Festival has been rounding up world-class artists and craftsmen and bringing them together under a legendary white tent in the Land of Enchantment. Taking place the first and second weekends of October, this annual Albuquerque favorite offers a taste of New Mexico and has earned its place as a cornerstone of attractions during the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.Â Crowds of shoppers return year after year to take part in the unsurpassed setting of a huge peaked tent under a hot air balloon dotted sky, bustling with 280 of the most talented artisans from all over the map. Invite your friends and save the dates! Weâll see you at this extraordinary fall festival.
