Hot Springs Festival

Recipe For People Soup

via Wikicommons

Take Truth or Consequences' hot springs flowing at 3.5 cubic feet per second—heated to around 100 degrees Fahrenheit; throw in 38 trace elements; add a keynote lecture on treating inflammation; stir in some live music, art shows and alternative health workshops; add people of all ages, at no charge; let simmer between Friday and Sunday, May 12-14, in beautiful T or C, making sure to stir often. Never ask yourselves who would want to make people soup. (It's aliens, probably!)

Celebrate healthy lifestyles, alternative medicine and sustainable living.


Kick off summer with a bang-up weekend in Truth or Consequences, NM. Long popular as a hot-water spa destination, Truth or Consequences will offer an extra-special reason to visit in May: the Hot Springs Festival, scheduled for May 12 through 14.

Organized by MainStreet Truth or Consequences, the Hot Springs Festival is a jam-packed celebration of healthy lifestyles, alternative medicine and sustainable living. Starting with a drumming ceremony Friday night and concluding on Sunday afternoon with a sustainable building tour, a lineup of instructional workshops, thought-provoking lectures, live art demonstrations, diverse music offerings, recreational activities and personal-care sessions with a spectrum of healing arts practitioners offer nonstop fun. Most of the festival events are free.

Children are welcome, as there will be hands-on activities for them, and an opportunity—new this year—to go tent camping along the Rio Grande in T or C’s tree-shaded Ralph Edwards Park.

The keynote lecture, scheduled for Saturday morning, is a must-attend event for everyone. Sunil Pai, M.D., the author of An Inflammation Nation: The Definitive 10-Step Guide to Preventing and Treating all Diseases through Diet, Lifestyle, and the Use of Natural Anti-Inflammatories, will discuss how the foods and products one consumes daily adversely affect one’s health and share his knowledge of natural, evidence-based treatments.

Three other events taking place concurrently in town—Film Fiesta; a recycled art exhibit at Geronimo Spring Museum; and T or C’s Second-Saturday Art Hop featuring open houses at downtown galleries and shops from 6 to 9 p.m.—expand the already-rich array of options available to Festival goers.
