33rd Annual Rio Grande Arts and Crafts Festival: Balloon Fiesta Show
Juried Fine Art and Craft Show
This juried show features the work of 200 fine artists and craftspeople from throughout the U.S., offering tourists and residents a unique, world-class art experience. Each artist sells their own work directly, and the overall selection of works is carefully curated to offer a wide range of prices & styles. This year, the lineup represents exactly 25 different states!
Live Music and Performances
Discover live music all day long in our outdoor pavilion; enjoy tunes from Syd Masters and the Swing Ryders, Oscar Butler, Zoltan & the Fortune Tellers and more! The outdoor pavilion is shaded with lots of seating and food options. Mariachis will stroll through the tent in the mornings to add a pep in your step! Kiddos can also enjoy entertainment each day, including magicians and The Recycle Man.
Food and Drink
Also beyond the big white tent is our Culinary Arts tent, where attendees can browse & sample handmade soups, dips, salsas, chocolate, honeys & more. This year we have 10 specialty food vendors selling and sampling their latest gourmet treats. If you’re hungry for lunch or breakfast, you can take a break and grab a locally sourced burrito, or enjoy a cold craft brew or margarita while taking in the views and music!
