This is an annual event featuring fine New Mexico wines, local art and entertainment. Ticket prices have been lowered this year to $12 in advance and $15 at the gate which includes a wine glass for tastings from any of the wineries.

The Tularosa Wine & Art Festival is the Rotary of Tularosa’s biggest fundraiser of the year. “Proceeds go right back into the community through our scholarships and other locally funded projects,” said Rotary President Jessica Gaston. Proceeds also benefit the RYLA, or Rotary Youth Leadership Award. This is a full sponsorship for one girl and one boy to attend a weeklong camp in the Manzano mountains during the summer of their junior to senior
year. Students experience leadership training, are exposed to the Rotary principles, and participate in team-building projects. Additional programs that benefit from the Rotary efforts include the Tularosa Little League, STEM programs, the Summer Reading Program and Thrive of Southern New Mexico (previously United Way of Otero County.) For more information on any of these programs or applications for scholarships contact Gaston at 575-4916927. Membership in the Rotary is open to any business professional that wants to serve the community and engage with others who want to do the same. Meetings are noon to 1 p.m. every Tuesday at from 12 to 1 pm at Casa de Sueños in Tularosa. For information about attending the festival, being a vendor or sponsoring this event, visit Facebook at Rotary of Tularosa, the festival website at www.tularosawinefestival.com or call Gaston.
