The 49th Annual Santa Fe Harvest Festival

Autumn is truly enchanting in New Mexico & a wonderful time to visit El Rancho de las Golondrinas. Join us in celebration of the harvest at this 200+ acres living history farm & ranch, where over 30 historic buildings set against the backdrop of majestic cottonwoods, draped in vibrant gold! Learn how a traditional red chile ristra is made, & pick your favorite pumpkin from our pumpkin patch. Stomp grapes by foot, make corn husk crafts, visit with our animal friends, shop handmade goods from talented local craftsmen, & much more. There’s a lot to immerse yourself in at the Santa Fe Harvest Festival, our longest-running & acclaimed event!
