YES! You are correct! The above dates for Fiesta 2017 are not Memorial Day weekend. And the days of the week and times have changed as well: to Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, 9 - 5 each day.

ADMISSION FEES for the 2017 Fiesta will be $8.00 per person per day; a two-day pass will be $12.00, and a three-day pass will be $16.00. Young people aged 18 and under may attend for free. Sorry, we are not set up to accept Credit or Debit cards. You may purchase tickets for $7.00 per person per day with Hold My Ticket by pressing: BUY TICKETSPLEASE BE AWARE: We have not been able to get Hold My Ticket to work the way we want it to. So regardless of which day ticket you purchase, it will be valid for ANY day of the Fiesta.

The biennial Fiesta is the major fundraiser for the Albuquerque Fiber Arts Council, Inc. (AFAC), a tax-exempt, non-profit organization.

So check out the Featured Artist and Special Exhibits! AND you need to sign up early for the Classes, as each Fiesta, they fill up more quickly. We have a wonderful list of Vendors, our favorites from previous Fiestas, as well as new ones.
