Celebrate Autumn in Ruidoso with a weekend of cool cars, hot chili, 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. “Everybody loves a parade and mixing with live music, beer and wine, and arts and crafts is a home run. The fall is a time for tradition and friends and our mountain is the perfect spot.”
2023 Parade Theme: This is Halloween. Design your float or parade entry around any Halloween movie.
The Aspenfest Festival will be immediately following the parade in Wingfield Park with live music, vendors, beer and wine, and kids activities.
