Bosque Chile Festival

Down the Hatch

If you're the kind of person who cleans your freezer every fall to make room for the green chile that will last you the rest of the year, well, the Bosque Chile Festival is for you. This celebration of the harvest of New Mexico's favorite food features music, activities for kids and adults, crafts and chile, duh. Bring an appetite to the National Hispanic Cultural Center on Saturday, Aug. 20, between 11am and 7pm and a little cash—its free to attend, but if you want to participate in the chile salsa taste-off its gonna cost you $5.
