50 Years of the Ruidoso Art Festival

Escape to the mountains for a getaway filled with art and inspiration this summer. *Scheduled for July 30 – August 1, the 2021 Ruidoso Art Festival will be held at the Ruidoso Convention Center.

Every year the event draws more than 5,000 people over the 3 day period and features numerous artists’ work including paintings, photography, sculptures, metal and woodwork, pottery, jewelry, and more. Whether you’re an artist, art lover, or collector, you are sure to enjoy the festival and all it includes!

Although there will be plenty to see at the event, Ruidoso brings it’s own natural masterpieces to the event with its mountain views and beautiful surroundings, such as the Lincoln National Forest and nearby White Sands National Park.
