Join our neighbors in Los Lunas as they celebrate everyone's favorite crop at the first-ever VIVA New Mexico Chile Festival. Farmers of the Middle Rio Grande have joined forces with the folks at Wagner's. The two-day event will feature live music, a beer garden, a petting zoo and a corn maze. Oh, and green chile. Lots and lots and lots of green chile, including a "U-pick garden." Cook up your own pot for a chance to win a carved wooden chile trophy. There will be a free shuttle from the Railrunner Station, so why not take the train to flavor town? (Ty Bannerman)Wagner's Farmland Experience (Valencia County)VIVA New Mexico Chile Festival
- 2020 Bosque Chile Festival
Looking for a little chile? The 2020 Bosque Chile Festival, a celebration of food, art, and culture on the Rio Grande, is happening Saturday, August 15 and Sunday, August 16, with times waiting to be officially announced. But due to COVID-19 and the State of New Mexico public health order, the festival will be presented virtually! There will still be entertainment, art activities, a virtual artisan market, chile-chef demonstrations, educational workshops and more. This free, all-ages event is meant to give those stuck at home a chance to see what the state has to offer. If you are a high-quality chile-inspired and authentic New Mexican business with an e-commerce website and want to be a vendor, there is still time. Applications are being accepted until Wednesday, August 5. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
