Comments Off on $1 Off Admission to Rio Grande Arts & Crafts Festival Spring Show

The Rio Grande Arts & Crafts Festival spring show is coming up this weekend but don’t pay the full admission price… get $1 off using the coupon.

The Rio Grande Arts and Crafts Festival will be springing out at EXPO New Mexico from March 7 – 9, 2014.  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 and painting to pottery and jewelry… and much more.

Kids can enjoy creating their own work of art at the Kids’ Creation Station, and naturally there will be food vendors to feed you everything from fajitas to gyros, plus specialty food items to buy from the culinary booths – and plenty of free samples! The festival also includes live entertainment, although at time of writing their website doesn’t give the entertainment schedule yet. Hmm, that’s strange, they usually have the line-up in place by now. But previous performers have included Syd Masters and the Swing Riders and Mariachi Fiesta Internacional, so expect some good grooves whoever is on the roster this year.

Regular adult admission is $7 or you can get a 3-day pass for $9, 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 coupon, it’s good for one admission or pass only, so you need a coupon for each adult going to the show.

  • When: Friday March 7 through Sunday March 9, 2014
  • Times: 10 am – 5 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.

Comments Off on Christmas in New Mexico Zia Arts & Crafts Festival

Get $1 off admission to the Zia Arts, Crafts & Gifts Festival this weekend November 20-21, 2010, and free entry for seniors on Sunday with the coupons…

It’s funny to talk about Christmas before we’ve even tackled the Thanksgiving turkey, but it’ll be here any minute… And what better gift for friends and out-of-state relatives than genuine, handcrafted items made by New Mexico artists?

The 2010 Christmas in New Mexico Zia Arts, Crafts & Gifts Festival now running through the weekend features about 200 exhibitors to make your holiday shopping easy!

Even better, use this $1 off coupon to save on admission. It says it’s good for one admission, so print enough for everyone in your party. Seniors get $1 discount even without the coupon, according to EXPO New Mexico admission info, plus shoppers aged 65+ can use this seniors free admission coupon to get in free on Sunday.

Regular adult admission runs $6, while kids under 15 are FREE! (The kids go free info is on Zia Arts & Crafts website.  Sorry for so many links – the admission info  is all over creation, but not all in one place! We’re trying to pass on all the freebie and cheap admission info we can.)

The Zia Arts & Crafts Festival is open:

  • Saturday, November 20 from 10 am – 6 pm
  • Sunday, November 21 from 10 am – 5 pm

Arts and crafts include ceramics, clothing, dolls, food, florals, furniture, ironwork, leather, jewelry, pottery, painting, photography, stained glass, sculpture, toys, weaving, wood, and more! We don’t have the full line up of exhibitors but in a show this large there will no doubt be crafts from out of state as well, and also expect entertainment and food vendors.

Zia Arts & Crafts Festival  at EXPO New Mexico is held at the Manuel Lujan building. Enter from the gate near San Pedro and Copper. Be prepared to pay $4 for parking at the fairgrounds.
