|October 4-5, 2014 This year’s theme is “Salute To Freedom – Aspenfest Style”.
|Celebrate Autumn in Ruidoso with a weekend of great golf, cool cars, hot chili, great crafts and a festive parade!
AspenFest, 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. Proceeds from Sunday’s Golf Tournament go to scholarships for Ruidoso area students.
“Everybody loves a parade and mixing with chile, cars and crafts is a homerun. The fall is a time for tradition and friends and our mountain is the perfect spot.”
This year we will once again take to the golf course for the RVCC SCHOLARSHIP GOLF TOURNAMENT! On October 5, 2014 the Ruidoso Valley Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a Golf Tournament at the Rainmakers Golf and Lifestyle Community golf course to raise money for Ruidoso area youth. Last year with the proceeds from our Scholarship Golf Tournament we were able to make sizable donations to the Lincoln County Youth Soccer League, Lincoln County 4-H, High Altitude Aquatic Swim Team, Ruidoso Parks and Recreation Wilderness Program, and the Boys & Girls Club. Help support this golf tournament and contribute to our area youth! CLICK HERE for the entry form.
