Fall in Taos: Arts, Hiking, and More!

It’s officially fall and time for the Taos Fall Arts Festival! This weekend marks the beginning of Taos’ oldest art festival, a time for local artists to convene and show their work all over town. The shows are free, so it’s a great time to get out and see some art! The schedule of events is posted at

Paseo at Taos Fall Arts is Back!

And for the second year, the Paseo at Taos Fall Arts is back, transforming the streets of downtown Taos with art installations, performances, and projections. We’re excited to be in the middle of it all and can’t wait to see what the weekend brings. The Paseo is only two days, Friday and Saturday the 25th-26th, so don’t miss it!

Perfect Time of Year for Hiking

Before enjoying the arts festival, it’s a great time of year to fit in some hiking. The BLM is offering guided hikes at the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument for a couple more weekends this season. Check out our events page for details, including piñon nut harvesting on September 26.

Fall colors are in full bloom in the mountains, and these warm sunny days and cool mornings are perfect weather for hiking. Our favorite hikes to view the colors are Italianos, Williams Lake, Santa Barbara, Columbine and Elliot Barker Trail. If you’re looking for some company, join the Meetup group Taos Light Hiking. Enjoy easy to moderate local hikes with other members, and let someone else do the organizing!
