      The Taos Mountain Music Festival is a two-day outdoor festival situated at the base of Taos Ski Valley, surrounded by national forest with the beautiful backdrop of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. This two-day celebration in the mountains hosts an amazing weekend of music, entertainment, and family fun activities for all ages to enjoy.

      Festival attendees can enjoy the festival's marketplace, where they can shop for crafts from local artisans, sample food from top area vendors and restaurants, and kids can enter the "Kidzone," to go wild in the jumpy castle, get their faces painted, and play games all weekend long.

      There will be late night music featured after the main stage both in Taos Ski Valley and in the campgrounds. Late Night shows featured in the campgrounds are free to all campers when a camping pass is purchased.

      "We wanted to make the campground more appealing for the campers, and what better way to do this then to add a free concert for Friday and Saturday nights," said Gumble, Festival Director.

      Two-day passes, VIP Two-day passes, Single Day tickets, Camping and RV passes are on sale now. Children 11 years old and younger are FREE and must be accompanied by an adult.
