Arts & Crafts and Food Vendor Registration

"Protect our Sacred, Lucha por lo que amas"

The Día de los Muertos Celebration and Marigold Parade Planning Committee invites you to participate in the DDLM Arts and Crafts & Food Fair. Arts and Craft Vendors present fine art, folk art, crafts, clothing and other items featuring Día de los Muertos or related Mexican@/Chican@ themes. We encourage artisans and artists who work on such themes to participate. However, art work must be original; mass-produced or factory-made items will be rejected. Food vendors are also welcome to apply for the Food Fair.

We request a donation of 20% of your evening’s proceeds and one item from your stock to raffle to help cover the costs of the event. This year we are also requesting a $25.00 registration fee submitted on a voluntary basis as we did last year. Spaces are 10’ x 10’ each. You will be responsible for providing a table(s) and any supplies needed to set up your booth. Vendor spaces are outside the Community Center. Please bring your own shade. Set-up will begin at 12:00 noon. Please no early birds. The crowd and the Parade will arrive at 3:00 p.m. The Celebration will end at 6:00 p.m.

 ********NEWS UPDATE FOR 2018********* 

The South Valley Día de los Muertos Celebration and Marigold Parade and weekly art workshops are funded by New Mexico Arts and the McCune Foundation and the community. We also receive in-kind support from Bernalillo County and community organizations. Funding and in-kind support have diminished due to austerity measures adopted by the government and other agencies. We, the organizers of these much loved South Valley events, rely more and more on your donations of time and money. Let us know if you would like to help by emailing us at
