Sep. 22—The Village of Corrales will be a busy on Saturday, Sept. 24 and Sunday, Sept. 25, as the 37th Annual Corrales Harvest Festival takes place.

The Corrales Harvest Festival returns after a two-year hiatus.

Each stop features different activities and attractions for the whole family. Vehicle traffic is restricted to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone. Parking for the event is free.

"This event brings out the best of our village and we are thrilled to once again be able to share the agricultural, artistic and historical beauty of our community," says Lane McIntyre, 2022 Corrales Harvest Festival chairperson. "This is such an important fundraiser for the Kiwanis Club of Corrales. It provides the funding for us to send less advantaged children to Kamp Kiwanis, helps us fund our August School Shopping Spree providing clothing to less advantaged children, and other projects to help those, especially children, in need."

After a day of fun at the festival, make your way to the Corrales Soccer Fields for the Annual Saturday Night Hootenanny Dance! This year's dance features rock 'n roll band Bad Habit & The Enablers.
