Thanks to Editor-at-Large Ron for sending us this coupon!

It wouldn’t be Balloon Fiesta without the Rio Grande Arts & Crafts Festival. Regular adult admission is $7, but we’ve got the coupon that gets you $1 off! Kids age 12 and under are FREE. The festival will be in full swing October 9, 10, and 11 (2009). Friday and Sunday, you can shop from 9:00am – 5:00pm. On Saturday, browse the art from 9:00am – 6:00pm.

Over 280 artists and craftspeople from all over the country display their work, give demonstrations, and, of course, sell their works. All manner of creative arts are represented, from glassmaking to painting to pottery and much more. Your kids will enjoy the Kids Creation Station, where they can create their own works of art, play in the sandbox, or enjoy a magic show — all for FREE! And, of course, there will be plenty of food vendors, offering everything from cappuccino to gyros.

The Rio Grande Arts & Crafts Festival is located on the southwest corner of I-25 and Paseo del Norte, Albuquerque. You can’t miss it: the festival is housed in a gigantic tent that’s three stories high and longer than a football field. Parking is free.
