The Las Cruces Country Music Festival has always been a "Spring Thing" but, this year, it's moving to Winter!

Due to Spring's crazy weather, the 2018 festival will take place October 19th - 21st.  According to the Las Cruces Sun - News:

“As everyone in Las Cruces knows, the weather in the spring can be a bit unpredictable,” said Jennifer Bales, executive director of Visit Las Cruces, who puts on the event. “With some of the things we have planned and performers we are looking to bring in, we need to ensure the best possible weather for the event.”

Last year's festival was held during an unseasonably cold weekend in April. Strong winds have been a concern at other festivals.

Next years event will offer more attractions and longer hours at a new location, the ballfields near Hadley Avenue. The lineup will be announced next Spring, for any other questions, click here, call 575-541-2444 or, visit their Facebook page!
