We need your talent and creativity!

The New Mexico Arts & Crafts Fair has been a tradition for over 50 years because countless individuals have volunteered their time, talent, energy and creativity to the production of the annual event. We are always looking for interested and committed community members to join the board or work on special committees. Your time and talent are key to the continuation of this precious event. We certainly have the need and if you have a little bit of time to spare we'd love to work with you. Please contact the office to discuss how you might help our community flourish by supporting New Mexico arts.
