November is a special month in Albuquerque full of fun and festive events for the whole family. We are an avid supporter of local community events and Albuquerque organizations that put these events because they are a great way to bring our community together.
Here are a few of the great events this month in Albuquerque:
Native American Heritage Month
The entire month of November as well as December are dedicated to celebrating the heritage, culture, and life of Native Americans. This includes the Native American Dancing and Pueblo Feast Days. These include dances, cultural exhibitions, and delicious food. It is a respectful time to celebrate culture and heritage.
The holidays are a wonderful time to visit the neighboring pueblos since many of them hold feast day celebrations over the course of the two months. It is a great way to better understand the culture and beliefs of Native Americans, a major part of our Albuquerque.
32nd Annual Placitas Holiday Fine Arts & Crafts Sale
Admission is free to this great event that helps you find some unique gifts for the holiday season. Held from November 23 through November 24, this is a tradition that has been going on for 32 years in the area. Here you will find artists and art lovers who converge to enjoy fine arts, crafts, wine, food and many fun activities.
There will be over 80 of New Mexico’s finest artists at three locations in the historic village of Placitas., including the Anaszi Fields Winery, the Presbyterian Church, and Placitas Elementary School.
On November 28th, you can either run or walk this great event before you hit the Thanksgiving table and settle into football games, parades, movies or even shopping. This is a great event for the entire family. It starts at 9am at the Rio Rancho Aquatic Center. There are three races to choose from: 10K, 5K, and Kids 5K.
