EXPO New Mexico is the state's only true multi-use entertainment and events facility, which in addition to being the site of the annual New Mexico State Fair, hosts hundreds of events throughout the year. EXPO New Mexico is a state agency, and one of a very few public entities which functions as an enterprise fund which means EXPO New Mexico has to raise all revenues to support its operations, though we receive a small amount of funding from the state for capital outlay improvements.
EXPO New Mexico is very closely tied to our premier event, the New Mexico State Fair which happens annually in the month of September. In addition to the Fair, we offer the largest outdoor year-round Flea Market that attracts thousands of patrons and hundreds of vendors every weekend. The majority of our 236 acre site is available for rent for private or public events, including exceptional cultural villages, unique and charming outdoor spaces, historic arts facilities, expansive trade show spaces, and an iconic concert and rodeo venue.
EXPO New Mexico has a small year-round staff under the direction of the General Manager, who works closely with the New Mexico State Fair Commission to carry out day to day operations and both host and produce extraordinary events.
