San Ysidro Feast Day Celebration
May 13, 2017
10 am to 2 pm
Each spring, New Mexico communities celebrate San Ysidro (aka San Isidro or Saint Isidore) the patron saint of farmers, gardeners, and workers. San Ysidro blesses the fields, brings rain and discourages drought, and assures a healthy growing season for local crops such as chile, beans, corn and squash.
Traditionally observed on May 15, join us May 13 as we celebrate San Ysidro’s Feast Day with local farmers, activities, food, artists and so much more!
Participants include: City of Albuquerque Open Space, Querencia Institute, La Cosecha, USDA/NRCS, Rancho de las Golondrinas, Bueno Foods, Master Gardeners, Antiquas del Norte Honeybee Rescue Farm, and FoodCorps New Mexico/APS School Gardens. You also can expect demonstrations by artists featured in Outstanding in His Field: San Ysidro – Patron Saint of Farmers, a food truck by Street Food Institute, food and paletas available from Pop Fizz and more!
The NHCC Art Museum will be open during this event with a $5 admission.
