The Corrales Harvest Festival is an annual two day event that takes place each year throughout the village of Corrales during the last weekend in September. The Festival showcases agriculture, merchants, artwork, performing arts and historic culture in the Village of Corrales.
Corrales Heritage Day is a spring celebration of the village’s history. This celebration is held at the Old San Ysidro Church and at Casa San Ysidro in the village’s old plaza on Old Church Road. The event is usually scheduled for the Saturday before the Sunday in mid-May when a special outdoor mass is performed outside the Old Church to honor Corrales’ patron saint San Ysidro.
Volunteers: 6 to 20 needed
This project consists of planting activities, with New Mexico historical significance, for children plus offering general gardening advice as requested for the attendees at the Casa for these special events. Children can plant Indian corn, Anasazi beans, pinto beans, scarlet runner beans, marigolds, sunflowers in a small 4-pack planter to take home on Heritage Day. For the Harvest Festival, children are offered garlic and hollyhock kits, etc., to take home to plant. We also offer a limited number of general planting brochures for adults, and business cards with hotline info and during Harvest Festival sample tastings of assumed heritage fruit grown at the Casa. Distributing the assumed heritage peach pits (when available) has been gratifying with reports of successful sprouting.
Project Meeting Time:
Volunteer shifts are usually: 10 am – noon, noon – 2 pm, 2 pm – 4 pm The co-chairs welcome any assistance offered by SCMG volunteers for securing supplies of seeds, planters, and copying and obtaining brochures and information cards before the festival days at the Casa.
