From Dragon Lights to freestyle motocross, the month of November is jam-packed at Expo New Mexico with all sorts of things for you and the family to come out and enjoy.
Here is a list of some of the prime events happening this month.
A nearly 2 month long light festival that will feature over 30 large illuminated displays, made by numerous Chinese artisans.
Aside from enjoying the displays, visitors will also have the opportunity to see nightly performances, view handicrafts, and enjoy many types of food and drinks.
This event will run from Friday, October 5 to Sunday, December 2.
Gratitude Train Remembrance
This event focuses on the French Gratitude Train, or Merci Train, located at the Box Car Stage.
In 1949, the French Government and People sent a series of train cars to each state in the United States.
These box cars were filled with various gifts and trinkets for the American people, as a show of respect and gratitude for their aid in the Second World War.
The event in November is a chance for the public to learn about the box car, and view some of the very rare items that were held within the train back in 1949.
Rio Grande Arts and Crafts Festival
Every November, this renowned festival comes to life at Expo New Mexico to shake things up during the busiest shopping weekend of the year.
Here, shoppers can find the most memorable and original gifts for everyone on their list, whether it’s a whimsical piece of pottery, a handmade leather belt, one-of-a-kind jewelry, a cool photograph or a striking piece of fine art.
The Rio Grande Holiday Show marks a great opportunity for artists and festival goers to experience one of Albuquerque’s best-loved events while enjoying live holiday music, festive food sampling, and much more.
Kicker Arenacross & Freestyle Motocross Show
Kicker Arenacross is an off-road motorcycle racing competition, occurring in top arenas across the country, with dirt brought in and man-made tracks designed using construction equipment.
