Southwest Chocolate & Coffee Fest @ Expo New Mexico
Mar 17 – Mar 18 all-day

One stop shopping for some of the nation’s finest chocolates, coffees, cheeses, baked goods, candies, dips, sauces, wines, and beer.

Founded in 2009, the Southwest Chocolate & Coffee Fest brings together 120 purveyors of incredible chocolates, coffees, candies, teas, gourmet foods, and wine and beer.  While not sampling and shopping from these unique businesses, attendees enjoy live music, cooking demonstrations, coffee seminars, baking contests, and a Kids Zone with free activities and live cow milking demonstrations.

By creating an affordable and accessible environment, the event now attracts over 18,000 chocoholics and coffee aficionados, making it the largest chocolate & coffee consumer festival in the country.

The event has grown to include purveyors of all types of gourmet foods and proudly presents craft cheeses, artisan breads and baked goods, and unique sauces and dips.

The mission of the festival is twofold: 1) support the development and prosperity of small culinary businesses and 2) educate consumers of the farm-to-festival lifeline of both chocolate and coffee and the value of supporting local, culinary businesses.

Experience the Southwest’s most delicious festival! From coffee roasters and tea houses to cakes and donuts, you’ll find something for everyone. Enjoy kid-friendly activities, live music, contests and, best of all, sample premium chocolate, coffee and gourmet food.

The Southwest’s largest gathering of chocolatiers, coffee roasters, tea houses, cake, donut and candy makers, wineries & more. There will be cooking demos, baking contests, chocolate eating contests and a barista latte art contest as well as live music. For kids there will be free games, bounce houses and face painting!

Isleta Pueblo Feast Day – St. Augustinito
Sep 4 all-day

Isleta means “Little Island” in Spanish, but Isleta Pueblo is hardly “little” having and area of 211,002 acres and a population greater than three thousand.

Isleta has had a troubled history. When the Pueblo Revolt began, many of the members fled to Hopi settlements in Arizona, while a number of Isleta people accompanied the Spanish in their retreat to El Paso del Norte. After the rebellion was brought under control, the Isleta people returned to their former home, some bringing Hopi mates and half-Hopi Children.

When some members of the Laguna Pueblo and the Acoma Pueblo joined the Isleta community in the eighteen hundreds, friction within this heterogeneous society led to internal disagreement over religious and ritual matters.

The solution to this conflict resulted in the creation of the satellite settlement of Oraibi. The Pueblo today is comprised of two small communities. Oraibi and Chicale and the the main Pueblo, Isleta.

The language is generally Tiwa with most people speaking English as well. Agriculture is the principal occupation of the Isleta people. Additional revenue is derived from land leased to local business concerns and to the United States Government.

A high portion of the population works outside the reservation, but a recent revival of pottery making is giving work to a number of artisans.

The Chiwiwi family, which is noted for its high quality work, has created fine products in the traditional style of pottery which are gaining the attention of collectors. Embroidery and jewelry-making are also experiencing a revival.

Isleta is also known for excellent bread baking.

The Isleta Pueblo performs several dances open to the public during June, July and August as well as September Fair and Christmas festivals.

Camping and fishing at Sunrise Lake on the Isleta Reservation are popular vacation attractions.
