Our mission is to promote and develop the history and character of the
village of Corrales through a yearly educational and recreational event
that showcases the local agriculture, merchants, artwork, performing arts
and historic culture. We support organizations and activities meeting the
agricultural, civic and social needs of the community of Corrales
The Corrales Harvest Festival is a two day event that takes place each year
throughout the village of Corrales during the third weekend in October.
The Festival had been held continuously since 1986. Traffic through Corrales
is restricted during the event to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for our guests.
The Corrales Harvest Festival is organized and managed by the Kiwanis
Club of Corrales Foundation, Inc., a non-profit corporation organized
under the laws of the state of New Mexico. Board and Committee members
serve without compensation of any kind.
Corrales is a small village with many intersecting small roads which do not
allow parking. Please adhere to the event signs and use designated
parking areas. Designated parking areas are located a short distance from
tractor stops on the Haywagon route, (“Corrales Not-So-Rapid-Transit”) which
will transport Festival attendees to all Festival venues.
Corrales is distinguished by its broad green pastures and orchards, its rich historic and artistic character,
and of course the sounds and scents of roosters, cows, horses and sheep. To cross the borders into Corrales is
to step into another time and place where the stresses of twenty-first century life give way to the grace and pace
of another era. The Corrales Harvest Festival celebrates the history and people that have made Corrales the charming
village that it is today.
The Festival began in 1985 with hayrides during the fall harvest. Over the years, other farms, businesses and restaurants began to participate,
enlarging the festival from 800 to over 10,000 visitors.
