Corrales Harvest Festival

2012 Corrales Harvest Festival Poster by Erika Clugston

Oh, the sweet joys of fall. Cooler weather, changing leaves, comfy sweaters and pumpkin-flavored everything make it a season worth loving. The friendly folks in the village to the north seem to agree. Every year since 1986, they have honored the autumn in style with the annual Corrales Harvest Festival. The jubilee offers tractor and pony rides, a pet parade, wine and beer tastings, live entertainment, a corn maze and a mechanical bull. Spend the day tomorrow and Sunday meandering through food and vendor tents, or stop by the Old Church to experience the mercado antiguo, featuring Spanish arts and crafts, chile ristra stringing, music, and a display of antique photos, maps and documents. Tickets to this bucolic celebration are $5 for adults and $2 for kids ages 5-11. Village of Corrales, Corrales • 9 am-5 pm • $2-$5 • ALL-AGES!
