The prickly pear is the only fruit to gain notoriety based solely on alliteration. Celebrate this misunderstood culinary tongue-twister at the New Mexico Prickly Pear Festival this Saturday, Aug. 31, at Three Sisters Kitchen. Browse vendors presenting a plethora of prickly pear products and pedagogical cooking demonstrations. Check out the potable prickly pear cocktail competition and enjoy powerful music and pleasing art that probably, presumably involves prickly pears. Tickets are $3 to $20. The festival runs from 10am to 6pm. (Joshua Lee)Three Sisters KitchenNM Prickly Pear 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.
