About Us:

The Rio Grande Arts and Crafts Festivals have been featuring vibrant collections of fine artists and craftsmen from all over the map for the past 30 years. Rio Grande's three annual juried art shows, each with their own distinct flavor, have all ranked among the top 100 art festivals in the nation. Combine those rankings with Albuquerque's status as a top-ten art destination, and it's no wonder these bustling markets have lured thousands of shoppers, avid collectors, and a continually evolving lineup of cutting-edge artistic talent!

In October, the leaves fall, hot-air balloons rise, a big tent pops up and is filled with 200 artists, welcoming flocks of Albuquerque residents and Balloon Fiesta tourists.  Come November, family and friends pile into cars over Thanksgiving weekend to start holiday shopping on the right foot with handmade gifts at Rio Grande's holiday show. March brings spring, sunny weather and the state's first major art event of the year.
