As summer winds down, downtown Artesia is the place to be for fun, music, art and games. Don’t miss our Red Dirt Black Gold festival each year for Oilfield Olympics, live Red Dirt music, gourmet oil patch cooking, and the New MexiCAN beer garden featuring beers from all around New Mexico. The concerts are free and the rest is cheap, but the entertainment value is high! Always the Saturday before Labor Day weekend. Visit www.artesiacd.org.
