From March 8-10, the Rio Grande Arts and Crafts Festival Spring Show will open its doors to celebrate 25 years.  Featuring a juried lineup of 200 fine artists and craftsmen from all over the country in a variety of mediums: glass art, jewelry, watercolor, ceramics, wood, photography, oil paintings, mixed media and more, this Albuquerque favorite never ceases to draw huge crowds!

Festival goers enjoy a variety of live music, specialty foods, artists’ demonstrations, and the complimentary Kids’ Creation Station, while artists ring in exceptional sales.  In honor of our 25th year, and nearly a decade of ranking in Sunshine Artist’s ‘Top 100 Shows’, we would like to toast to our talented artists, loyal customers, and New Mexico’s fabulous spring weather.

The Festival will be held indoors in the Lujan Exhibit Complex at Expo NM Fairgrounds in Albuquerque, New Mexico. From I-40, exit south on Louisiana Blvd. – turn west on Lomas Blvd. – turn south on San Pedro Blvd. Turn in at Gate 3 or 4 to enter the Expo New Mexico Fairgrounds.
