Experience Latin rhythms and flavors, master artisans from across Mexico and artisanal tequila on the beautiful Western New Mexico University campus set in the mountains of the Southwest on Father’s Day Weekend, June 16, 17 and 18, 2017.

Friday Night kicks off with our Sneak Peek, Opening Reception and Dance where we will introduce our Artisans, their handcrafted work, and welcome them to Silver City, NM, and the United States. Patrons will have a chance to Meet the Artists and get a first look at the Artisan Market, as well as purchase goods. Your ticket will also get you into the Dance with Music by Baracutanga and a Performance by Columbian Dancers. Food and libations will be available.

Saturday will host a full day of the Artisan Market, featuring artisans from all over Mexico, demonstrations, guided children’s activities, Latin inspired food and drink, and continuous musical and dance performances including capoeira, samba, folklorico, and mariachi’s. There will also be a Tequila Tasting from 1-5 PM featuring 15 small batch and artisanal tequilas from Jalisco, Mexico.

Saturday evening will feature New Mexico’s “King of New Mexico Music,” Tobias Rene, whose show consists of an 8-piece power house band with a full brass section. Tobias is considered one of the most potent Latin entertainers of all time with explosive energy on stage. Beer, wine and spirits will be available for purchase from Little Toad Brewery & Distillery.

Sunday will continue the Artisan Market, Latin inspired food and drink, children’s activities and free musical performances, and will begin with a Blessing of the Fathers by Father Oliver from St. Vincent de Paul at noon.

Fiesta Latina is a family oriented event with something for everyone, set outside on the beautiful grounds of Western New Mexico University in Silver City, NM.

The Artisan Market and ongoing music and performances are free to the public. Ticketed events are: Sneak Peek, Opening Reception and Dance - $10; Tequila Tasting (10 tastes for $20); Headliner: Tobias Rene - $15. Tickets available on line.
