Hatch Valley Chile Festival
Sep 3 – Sep 4 all-day

Hatch Valley Chile Festival

As summer cools down, the Village of Hatch heats up. Labor Day weekend heralds the annual Hatch Chile Festival, a two-day celebration of our world-famous crop. The festival attracts over 30,000 visitors from all over the United States, including such notables as the Food Network and the BBC. Festival goers can sample famed chile recipes, watch the crowning of the chile festival queen, or toss a horseshoe in celebration of our most famous crop. The event also features chile ristra contests, artisan and food booths, and a carnival. Visit our events page.

“Celebrate the Future” Day
In 2006, we began “Celebrate the Future” day in honor of Spaceport America. Science, engineering and aeronautic organizations present demonstrations and displays to educate our citizens on the impact and employment possibilities of the Southwest Regional Spaceport.

Pick a direction… Any direction…
The surrounding areas hold your next adventure. With New Mexico State Parks in every direction, you can rock hunt, boat, bike, hike or ski. With Leasburg State Park and Fort Seldon to the south and Caballo Lake State Park, Percha Dam State Park and Elephant Butte Lake State Park to the north, outdoor enthusiasts are sure to find the perfect opportunity for their recreation! Click here to get directions!

Hatch Business
Located off Interstate 25, between Las Cruces and Truth or Consequences, the Village of Hatch has experienced steady but moderate growth. In 2007, the town population registered a little over 1,600 people. The Village of Hatch also serves seven unincorporated communities with a combined population of 5,000 people.

With four banks, two grocery stores, a pharmacy, a few retail stores, and a smattering of restaurants, Hatch offers all the amenities of small-town life. The Ben Archer Health Center meets the community’s healthcare needs with doctors, a dentist, an ambulance service and emergency medical technicians. Our local Municipal Airport was awarded the “most improved small community airport” and continues to improve.

The opening of Spaceport America, the world’s first purpose-built commercial spaceport, brings the exciting frontier of commercial space travel to our backyard. The entrance to Spaceport America is only nine miles south from the Village of Hatch, which makes us the “New Gateway to Space.”

Hatch History
Born from an extension of the Santa Fe Railroad Company in 1880, Hatch, New Mexico, began as an adobe post office and a railroad flag station. Named after General Edward Hatch, Commander of the Southwest military, the town grew until a flood in 1921 destroyed many of the adobe buildings constructed of earth and wood.

The village rebuilt, and continues to prosper as an agricultural community to this day. The advent of the nearby Spaceport America, the nation’s first purpose-built commercial spaceport, promises an exciting new chapter in the history of Hatch. Visit some of our affiliates here.

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.
