The locals say, “If you only come to the races one weekend all summer, let it be the Zia Festival!” That’s because the race track is decked out in the state’s vibrant colors ready to welcome the best New Mexico-bred thoroughbreds and quarter horses. There will be approximately 60 statewide venders displaying art, crafts, jewelry, and other creations make in the Land of Enchantment. There will be a special play area for the kids, so make plans now to come enjoy the annual Zia Festival celebration.
