17th Annual Socorrofest – October 4-5, 2019

Socorrofest began in 2003 to honor and celebrate the FREE State of Socorro. This event is a way to enjoy our historic Plaza and involve the community, as well as visitors, enticing participants with music, arts & crafts vendors, food booths, children’s events, and a large beer and wine tent.


There is nothing better than fresh New Mexico chile produced in the rich farm lands of the Rio Grande and the Socorro area has many local family farmers who raise more than five varieties of green chile.
