Announcing the 8th Annual ABQ Recycled Art Fair! This year’s fair features over 40 New Mexico art vendors, a youth market, educational activities, fun contests, and live musical performances!
What is recycled or upcycled art? It is work created from 75% or more discarded material—stuff that would have otherwise piled up in storm water drains, vacant lots, or in the landfill. Help us to celebrate Open Space Spring Clean ups in the Foothills and all efforts that keep our city clean throughout the year.
Consider carpooling to be even greener. This is a FREE event. Schedule of events:

This year, the event is supercharged with the partnership of Cinco de Mayo organizers David Fisher and Kenny Chavez as well as a partnership with Valle De Oro National Wildlife Refuge. The transformative nature of upcycle art is sure to amaze you. Browse over 40 booths of art that is created of 75% or more of material that would have been discarded if not for the inventiveness of these artists. This event began and continues to be a celebration of our Spring Clean Ups in the foothills. To participate in "most interesting trash found" contests and to help your community be a cleaner, healthier place, come out and join us every Saturday, March 25 - April 22. Then make your way to the visitor center to relax to great music.
