ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE)- It’s the best time of the year once again. Chile season is upon us and you can take part in all the city has to offer at the Bosque Chile Festival in a celebration of food, art, and culture.

Happening at the National Hispanic Cultural Center, the festival will offer an abundance of activities including arts and crafts vendors, agricultural workshops, kids’ activities, food trucks, beer, wine and more. This year’s newest competition is the Disc-It sponsored Chicharron Challenge highlighting both amateur and professional cooks as they fry up this favorite treat.

“Bernalillo County has a rich culture in agriculture and then we like to partner and celebrate our New Mexican heritage and really want to celebrate New Mexico True products as well as the tradition of agricultural partners in the state,” said Community and Engagement Outreach Manager Carrie Moritomo.
