First held in 1971 as an outdoor “tent” show, the Ruidoso Art Festival has evolved into an annual event which attracts thousands of art enthusiasts. Now an indoor event held at the Ruidoso Convention Center, artists arrive from around the United States to display a dazzling array of fine art. The Ruidoso Art Festival also features a Silent Auction to benefit the Chamber’s Special Project Fund which funds philanthropic endeavors in local communities.
Art lovers, from the serious collector to the first-time buyer, will be sure to discover treasures to complement any lifestyle or budget at the Ruidoso Art Festival.
