Each time period is exhibited with relevant material objects from our permanent collection, and supplemented by objects on loan from other institutions. The contemporary arts and crafts section features a sizeable and noteworthy collection of artists from each of the 19 Pueblos.

Senior deals starting at Only 50 years Old

As I was waiting in line behind an older gentleman at Wendy's recently,I heard him ask for his senior discount. The girl at the register apologized and 
charged him less. When I asked the man what the discount was, he told me that
seniors over age 55 ...get 10% off everything on the menu, every day. (But you need to ASK for your discount.)

Being of 'that' age myself, I figured I might as well ask for the discount too.
this incident prompted me to do some research, and I came across a list of restaurants, supermarkets, department stores, travel deals and other types of offers giving various discounts with different age requirements. I was actually surprised to see how many there are and how some of them start at the young age of 50 .
This list may not only be useful for you, but for your friends and family too.

2013 Fall Festival and Mini Maze

2013 Fall Festival and Mini Maze

It’s fall again, and time for the Rio Grande Community Farm’s 2013 Fall Festival & Mini-Maze! We’ve got all sorts of fun lined up, so be sure to attend each event and get in on all the action. From pumpkin games and activities and getting dirty on the farm, you name it- we’ve got it!
Due to the drought of the past few years, we haven’t had water from the acequia to irrigate our corn this year, and the maze is going to be a little patchy and shorter than in years past. Nonetheless, during all Fall Festival events, visitors are welcome to explore and get lost in the maze as part of the fun.

Sustainability Day & Drought Resistance on the Farm

Saturday, October 5th (from noon to 5 p.m.)

Come out to learn about how farms like ours handle the drought, and enjoy a number of activities centered on sustainable living! Demonstrations and activities include backyard farming/gardening, renewable energy demonstrations, foraging and wilderness education, arts and crafts, and many more. Learn More

After pumpkins are picked from the field, they are measured & priced individually. Prices range from $2-10.
