Celebrate Autumn in Ruidoso with a weekend of great golf, cool cars, hot chili, great crafts and a festive parade!

2014 soccer float AspenFestAspenFest, Ruidoso’s annual fall celebration, the first weekend in October, allows residents and visitors alike to participate in the celebration of our caring community, the cool crispness of the coming fall and the beauty that is Ruidoso. AspenFest weekend is kicked off every year with a parade Saturday at 10 a.m. through Midtown Ruidoso and features a Golf Tournament on Sunday. “Everybody loves a parade and mixing with chile, cars and crafts is a home run. The fall is a time for tradition and friends and our mountain is the perfect spot.”

The Ruidoso Valley Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce this year’s Aspenfest Grand Marshals will be the Ruidoso High School Homecoming King and Queen.
