New Mexico’s traditions are preserved in its numerous Native American ceremonials, Spanish festivals, and rodeos. Popular events include the Santa Fe Fiesta commemorating the city’s conquest by the Spanish in 1692; the New Mexico State Fair in September in Albuquerque; the International Hot Air Balloon Festival in October in Albuquerque; and the Hatch Chile Festival in September. Native American dances include the Harvest Dance at Jemez Pueblo’s Fiesta of San Diego in November, and the Sun Dance at Taos Pueblo’s Fiesta of San Geronimo in September. The dramatic Shalako Ceremonial is performed by the Zuni in early winter.

International Ceremonial


The International Ceremonial, held in Gallup each August, attracts Native Americans from as many as 30 ethnic groups. Taos hosts the April Talking Picture Festival, which features an international film festival and media literacy forum. Other popular annual events include the Deming Duck Races; Bernalillo Wine Festival; and the Whole Enchilada Fiesta and Annual International Mariachi Concert, in Las Cruces in October.

A few blocks away from El Palacio is the Mission of San Miguel, dating from 1710. Mesilla and the Old Town in Albuquerque retain traces of Spanish occupation. White Oaks, Cabezon, Mogollon, and many other ghost towns re-create for the visitor the early ranching or mining days. "New Mexico" © Emmanuel BUCHOT, Encarta, Wikipedia
