The Rio Grande Arts & Crafts Festival 13th Annual Holiday show runs during this Thanksgiving weekend, and you can get $1 off admission using the coupon.

The Rio Grande Arts and Crafts Festival will be getting festive on Black Friday and over the holiday weekend, from November 23 to 25, 2012, at EXPO New Mexico. Around 200 artists and craftspeople from all over the country display their work, give demonstrations, and, of course, sell their arts and crafts. All kinds of creative arts are represented, from glassmaking to painting to pottery to jewelry and much more.

Kids can enjoy the Holiday Creation Station, where they create their own works of art. They can also become a work of art with facepainting, or play in the sandbox. Entertainment in the Jingle Bell Square includes visits from Santa Claus (11 am – 3 pm daily) and at various times you might hear a storytelling elf, Victorian carolers, Syd Masters and The Swing Riders, Mariachi Fiesta International, and other musical performers.

Of course there will be food vendors for lunch, and also the culinary arts booths selling specialty food items from goat cheese to mustard to honey – and giving plenty of free samples!

Regular adult admission is $6 or you can get a 3-day pass for $8, but save a buck by printing out the Festival’s $1 off admission coupon valid on either a one day ticket or the festival pass. Plus it’s free admission for kids aged under twelve.  If you use the $1 discount admission coupon, it’s good for one admission or pass only, so you need a coupon for each adult going to the show.

  • When: Friday to Sunday November 23 – 25, 2012
  • Times: Friday and Saturday 10 am – 5 pm. Sunday 10 am – 4 pm.

The Rio Grande Arts & Crafts Festival takes place at the EXPO New Mexico Manuel Lujan building. Be prepared to pay $5 for parking at the fairgrounds.
