Kick off your holiday shopping at the Rio Grande Holiday Show!
Bring your friends and family to the Rio Grande Arts and Crafts Festival, Thanksgiving Weekend, to kick-off that holiday shopping and ease into the season! Every November, this renowned festival comes to life at Expo New Mexico to shake things up during the busiest shopping weekend of the year. Here, shoppers can find the most memorable and original gifts for everyone on their list, whether it's a whimsical piece of pottery, a handmade leather belt, one-of-a-kind jewelry, a cool photograph or a striking piece of fine art. The Rio Grande Holiday Show marks a great opportunity for artists and festival goers to experience one of Albuquerque's best-loved events while enjoying live holiday music, festive food sampling, and much more. It's no surprise that this festival takes the turkey when it comes to New Mexico's Thanksgiving Weekend traditions!
