This interactive virtual celebration will also include recorded performances from the Our Fair New Mexico concert series, a pie decorating competition, kid friendly craft activities, and traditional New Mexican food demonstrations. Participants can dive into the history of the apple orchards at Los Luceros through a recorded ranger-led talk and will have the opportunity to record their own histories with the “Schedule an Oral History Interview” feature.

The Virtual Vendor Market is a great place to shop for New Mexico arts and crafts or to list your own made-in-New Mexico pieces to be featured for a $5 donation.

Participate now with others across the country who are submitting their pie decorations, crafts photographs, fall recipes and stories.

A summative event announcing prize winners and sharing oral history excerpts will be held on October 1, 2020 at 6:00 PM.
