The New Mexico State Fair is only nine days away. This year, Expo New Mexico and New Mexico Wine have partnered to bring two new festivals: the State Fair Cider Festival and the State Fair Wine Festival.
State Fair Cider Festival features five local hard cider producers inside “The Farm” on the fairgrounds. This is a mini-cider festival for $10 and festival goers get a commemorative glass for your cider samples. The fest is from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on September 7.
Then on September 14, the winners of the State Fair Wine Competition at the State Fair Wine Fest will be showcased from 5 p.m .to 8 p.m. Half dozen award-winning wineries and breweries will be bringing their best stuff to the fest.
For the first time in a decade of this competition fairgoers can enjoy the best wines from across the state, Rose, Sav Blanc, Montepulciano, and again, it’s just a $10 ticket once you are inside the fair or you can buy it online now for $18 and it includes your entry into the fair.
