The 2013 Local Food Festival and Field Day is held this Sunday October 13  from 11 am to 4 pm at the Gutierrez-Hubbell House and Demonstration Farm.  In previous years, the organizer told me around 3,000 people went, so it should be lively down on the farm!

If you want to enter the home cook pie contest sponsored by Edible magazine, sign up fast! Admission is free and there are prizes to be won. The emphasis is on local pies featuring at least one ingredient grown or produced in New Mexico, such as fruit, pecans, or pumpkin. There are categories for adult cooks and for kids too. You have to register online for the Edible Pie Contest by 5 pm on October 10, then take your pie to the Local Food Festival on Sunday.

Comments Off on Gutierrez-Hubbell House Outdoor Films: June 2

This should be a sweet place to watch free films under the stars!  I love what they do at this historic property, with so many free programs offered by Bernalillo County Open Space and the Hubbell House Alliance.

So I was pleased to spot the Gutierrez-Hubbell House outdoor films event on Saturday June 2, 2012, at 8 pm. Cien Años Después: 100 Years Later  is free for all as part of the New Mexico statehood Centennial celebrations, and it includes three documentary films:

  • Land Water People Time
  • On the Other Side of the Fence
  • Within Me

All three are by local filmakers, exploring the culture, traditions and history of  New Mexico’s rural communities.  Take your folding chairs and sit back in the beautiful (we hope) June evening, and enjoy!

Gutierrez-Hubbell House is located at 6029 Isleta Blvd SW, Albuquerque, 3 miles south of Rio Bravo.
