Description

Casa San Ysidro Harvest festival is a two day event in conjunction with the Village of Corrales. This is the village’s largest festival and events are scattered throughout the town. At Casa San Ysidro, over 2,000 people are expected over the two day period. Casa San Ysidro houses a collection of rare artifacts in a historic adobe home and multi-acre setting.

This year during the 2018 Harvest Festival, Casa San Ysidro will host a variety of activities, music, and heritage craft demonstrations from traditional artists all across New Mexico. Casa’s activities will feature seed planting with the Sandoval County Master Gardeners, food preservation with Little Dirt Farms, creating Spanish colonial ironwork with the local blacksmith, traditional spinning and weaving with Las Aranas Spinners, baking in an horno oven, performances by Recycle Man, and much more.

Every year we celebrate the living traditions of New Mexico by highlighting the state’s finest artists helping to keep cultural arts relevant and vital today. Examples of retablos, bultos, incrusted straw crafts, tinwork, pottery, colchas, and jewelry are just some of the traditional heritage arts that will be demonstrated on September 29 and 30. From 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Casa will join with its Corrales neighbors in a free event to celebrate the fall harvest.
