For 25 years, the Rio Grande Arts and Crafts Festival has been rounding up world-class artists and craftsmen and bringing them together under a legendary white tent in the Land of Enchantment. Taking place the first and second weekends of October, this annual Albuquerque favorite has earned its place as a cornerstone of must-see attractions in the city during the International Balloon Fiesta. The two events are in close proximity, just one exit away on I-25. Over 80,000 shoppers and out-of-town visitors flock to the big white tent framed by colorful hot air balloons, bustling with 280 of the most talented artisans from all over the map. High attendance, visitors from all over the world and great sales have helped this extraordinary fall festival earn a ranking of #15 in the nation by Sunshine Artist Magazine.
