28th Rio Grande Arts & Crafts Festival

Events | PUBLISHED 09.30.16 | AH ADMIN

Now in its 28th year, the Rio Grande Arts & Crafts Festival’s big white tent is on the move again and will be located closer to the Balloon Fiesta than ever before! 

Sandia Resort and Casino

In 2016, for two consecutive weekends during the Balloon Fiesta, the 'Big White Tent' will be staked in front of Sandia Resort & Casino.   

 The Festival is not only the top ranking art show in the Southwest, but also nationally ranked at #10 by industry standard Sunshine Artist Magazine. It draws national artists to the NM art scene and promotes Albuquerque and New Mexico as art destinations for tourists.  Spread the word about the new location of the 28th Annual Rio Grande Arts & Crafts Festival, and come join the fun!
