This is the 32nd year of the “El Rito Studio Tour and Art Festival” with the “Mercado” as a traditional part of this festival. It is estimated that between 1,200 and 2,000 people will visit the Village of El Rito during the festival to see and learn about art, as well as to purchase art and other items. As such, our Mercado provides artisans, crafters, and other vendors with a unique opportunity to display, promote and sell your work and merchandise to those visiting El Rito for this event.

Mercado Dates and Time: September 29th and 30th from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Set-up begins at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday. The building will be opened by 9:00 a.m. on Sunday. Vendors will be required to keep their booths open until 5:00 p.m. Sunday. Location: Northern New Mexico College, El Rito Campus, El Rito, NM
