Can I bring my pet?
No, pets are NOT allowed at the fairgrounds.
Not even my Chihuahua in my purse?
The fairgrounds policy is no pets. You’ll have to leave them at home.
Can I bring in something to drink?
You may bring in closed (sealed) bottles of water or soda ONLY. No outside alcohol is
allowed into the fairgrounds, and no open containers are allowed out the gate.
The Harvest Wine Festival is under a Public Celebration Permit for wineries only and no
other type of alcohol may be consumed on site as per NM State law.
Can I bring my children?
You may bring YOUR children and those for whom you are the legal guardian, but not those that aren’t your own. You MAY NOT bring your niece/nephew/neighbor/friend of your child.
What if it rains?
Please visit www.weather.com and enter the zip code 88005. This is the zip code for the Fairgrounds and often you will find it is raining in Las Cruces or El Paso or Deming, but not at the fairgrounds.
Our summer storms are sporadic and pass quickly. The Harvest Wine Festival will not close unless weather is extreme or dangerous. Otherwise, we appreciate the cooling effect of the rain and continue the celebration. There will be no refunds for weather-related reasons.
What sort of payment do you accept?
We take cash and credit cards. Credit card transactions are on the two lines
to the east side of the entrance gate. Look for signs.
Can I bring my own cooler?
No coolers are allowed at the wine festival.

Do you have an alcohol servers’ license?

and would like to work, please contact us.
