Bernalillo County and the National Hispanic Cultural Center present the 2020 Bosque Chile Festival, a celebration of food, art, and culture on the Rio Grande. The public is invited to join in the celebration of the chile harvest on Saturday, Aug. 15 and Sunday, Aug. 16, 2020.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the State of New Mexico public health order, this year the festival will be presented virtually, on Facebook at www.facebook.com/bosquechilefestival.

The virtual event will offer entertainment, art engagement activities, an artisan market, chef demos, educational workshops and more.

Organizers are currently seeking vendors for the artisan market. Interested artisan and pre-packaged/value added food producers should visit www.bernco.gov/bosquechilefestival, complete and return the vendor application for consideration. Vendors interested in consideration must have an e-commerce site due to the virtual nature of the event.

Interested vendors can email bosquechilefestival@bernco.gov or call 505-328-4817 for more information.

Vendor applications are available at www.bernco.gov/bosquechile festival.
