With all of the excitement of the New Mexico State Fair, organizers realize, it can be overwhelming for some people.
That’s why they have what is called a “Sensory Stations”, which are designed to give families and a place to take a break from the crowds and noise.
The Sensory Station provides a safe space for our special needs Fair guests to de-escalate and provides low-key and helpful sensory input activities. Open daily, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
It is one of the few places on the fairgrounds that is quiet and cool, both of which are things that are very important for de-escalation. Along with the atmosphere, they offer the sensory station guests with a lot of sensory-related stimuli.
