Fall Into Autumn with the New Mexico Pecan Festival
Join us for the event of the season!
The New Mexico Pecan Festival draws visitors from all corners of the country to celebrate the pecan, a famous nut that is commonly used in the Southwestern region. From salads to pecan pies, the many versatile uses of the nut are on display at the festival, with attendees able to sample different varieties that have a unique taste.
The festival will include a variety of events and activities, including a 5-kilometer road race, a fashion show, pecan sack races, and a pecan pie eating contest. For kids and their families there will also be carnival rides and a petting zoo, according to a news release from event organizers. Adult activities include a "Best Pecan Drink/Beer Contest," and wine and beer tastings from New Mexico wineries and breweries.
Join us on the plaza for an event you will go nuts over.
