Rio Rancho Fall Festival at City Center

Saturday, October 23, 2021

The City of Rio Rancho is excited to announce its inaugural Rio Rancho Fall Festival, which is a free family friendly event. This year, the festivities will take place at the new Campus Park at City Center and the Rio Rancho Events Center on Saturday, October 23, 2021 from 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. City Center will be decorated to celebrate the fall season and live music will be playing throughout the day in the Sky Room at Campus Park. This community event provides something for everyone: carnival games, pumpkin carving, food trucks, a beer garden, and trunk or treating. There will also be a special appearance and pumpkin carving demonstration by Paul Dever of Dever Custom Creations. Paul specializes in realistic, 3d pumpkin carving and is the winner of 2019 Food Network’s ‘Outrageous Pumpkins Challenge’.

Guinness World Record

In 2013, the Galloping Grace Youth Ranch and 1,060 Rio Rancho citizens set the record for the most people carving pumpkins simultaneously. This year, we hope to break that record with close to 2,000 pumpkins carved simultaneously. Participation in this activity is free and pumpkin carving supplies will be provided and available.
