September 22-24, 2022

This boutique festival returns in 2022 completely under the Red River Events umbrella. Red River Folk Festival takes place across three days and three venues in and around Red River, NM, during the anticipated aspens' changing to their autumn colors. Returning to Red River's Folk and Americana roots, we look forward to bringing you both emerging artists and nationally touring acts.


One Festival. Three Venues.

Brandenburg Park

Located in the middle of town, Brandenburg Park is where all Friday and Saturday daytime music will take place,  alongside a favorite annual event known as Aspencade. Aspencade features handmade crafts, jewelry, home furnishings, food, art, pottery, and specialty booths.

Bitter Creek Ranch

Located a few miles from town, Bitter Creek Ranch is an outdoor amphitheater set against a beautiful mountain backdrop and private lake. This is where we'll kick off the festival on Thursday night. September is a particularly magical time to visit BCR as the aspen trees are changing to their fall colors.

Motherlode Saloon

Located several blocks from Brandenburg Park, and next door to our fourth, unofficial venue, the Lost Love inside Texas Reds, the historic Motherlode is where we'll wrap each evening. This storied dance hall is one of the Southwest's last great honky-tonks.



September 23-25, 2022

Brandenburg Park

Talented artists from across the Southwest converge in Red River, NM for a one-of-a-kind show! This arts and crafts fair takes place alongside and within Red River Folk Festival. Artisian booths featuring handmade goods and art are featured throughout the park and inside the Red River Conference Center.
