About

The Local Food Festival and Field Day is an annual event highlighting local food and agriculture in our region presented by Bernalillo County Open Space, in cooperation with the Mid-Region Council of Governments Agriculture Collaborative and other community organizations.

The continued success of this event reflects the ever-increasing demand for local agriculture, locally produced foods and gardening related activities. Many festival attendees have stated that they are now more willing to seek out New Mexico food products and to shop at area farmers’ markets. Others have indicated a new interest in growing more food and including more fresh and local foods as a part of their regular diet.

Connecting the public with local growers, producers, and businesses is crucial in sustaining local agriculture. The Local Food Festival and Field Day is one step in helping to make those connections.

Experience great local food: free samples, chef demos, food trucks; live music; film screenings, workshops; beer and wine garden; kids’ activities including face painting, petting zoo, and story time. Ride your bike and park in the bike valet!
