Since 1938 the New Mexico State Fair has been a favorite gathering place for New Mexicans to celebrate local food, competition, culture, creativity and our rich agricultural heritage. Located just five miles from Albuquerque KOA Journey at EXPO NM, the fair has consistently been in the top 5 ranked fairs in the nation based on affordability, programming and weather.
