The last four decades have seen the Taos Fall Arts Festival outgrow the living rooms of art patrons who wished to support and promote the local art community, expanding over the years into ever-larger town venues as its popularity and significance grew. Now, It is rightfully hailed as the pinnacle of a season-long celebration of Taos art, attracting visitors and locals who want to experience for themselves the essence of the country’s most significant art colony. 

So, welcome to “New Beginnings,” the 48th annual festival which kicks off on Friday (Sept. 23) at UNM Bataan Hall on Civic Plaza Drive from 3 to 9 p.m. The festival will be open to the public through Oct. 2 during the hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
