In its 22nd year, the Rio Grande Arts and Crafts Festival Holiday Show featured the work of 165 artists from 14 different states.

Organizers said the three-day event, which ran Friday through Sunday at the Expo New Mexico, was more well-attended than last year’s event.

“Thank you for rallying behind this special Albuquerque tradition,” organizers posted on the festival’s Facebook page Sunday.

The festival was a spectacle for all senses.

One aisle, dubbed the “Culinary & More” row, featured salsa, local honey, natural dips, homemade soaps and hearty soup mixes.

Guests also enjoyed live music, festive food sampling and art demonstrations.
