Franciscan Festival Of Fine Art Mesilla Park New Mexico

Franciscan Festival Of Fine Art


This is an outdoor show on the beautiful grounds of the Holy Cross Retreat Center, 600 Holy Cross Road, Mesilla Park, New Mexico, 88047 two miles south of University Ave. and Highway 10 in Las Cruces. It features 80-90 artists who display a variety of fine arts, including paintings, photography, sculpture, ceramics, wood works, jewelry, and more. The show also features an enchilada dinner and other of food vendors, a silent auction, a raffle, live music on two stages, and a beer/wine garden. (If using GPS or Googlemaps, 4889 South Main St. Mesilla Park, NM brings you to our entrance.)

The Franciscan Festival of Fine Arts in 2016 was enjoyable and successful.  We counted over 4,000 people who came for the two day festival, Saturday and Sunday before Labor Day.  You could see over half of the exhibitors while walking in the shade, and the remaining ones were in the courtyard. We welcomed voer 85 registered artists and 8 food vendors, working to maintain a sense of individual fine art pieces and not include crafts or reproduced pieces.  The pleasant weather made it nice to stay for awhile.  If you would like to see what the artists prepared to the "Artists" tab and you can view many photos.
The Art Festival in 2017 will be September 2nd and 3rd.  We would be happy to have you come as a vendor or a festival goer!  
  Artists and food vendors can find registration forms for 2017 on the "Artists Forms" tab during early spring 2017..
