Come join us for the spiciest weekend of the year at the second annual VIVA New Mexico Chile Festival taking place September 6th through September 8th!
     This jam packed, family-fun event is three days long and GREAT for all ages. There is delicious food from local restaurants that can be enjoyed with a nice glass of wine for the adults while listening  to live music. There will be plenty for the little ones to do too.  New Mexico’s amazing weather and Wagner's gorgeous chile farm in the sunny valley of Los Lunas, makes for the perfect place for this wonderful event.

Taking the stage will be Ryan McGarvey, Christian Brooks, The Bo Brown Band, Mariachi bands, Ivon Ulibarri, The Lost Howlin' Coyotes,  just to name a few! 
     We are offering actives from a u-pick garden, a petting zoo, hayride tours, cook-off contests,and pony rides. 
   As you enjoy all the family fun, treat your nose to the best smell in the state - roasting chile drifting through the air.   With the chile being at the peak of the season, you will want to make sure to leave with a truck full of Wagner's world class chile.
