Salsa Festival

Our annual outdoor festival takes place at the Historic Luna County Courthouse Park in Deming, New Mexico. This event is free to the public and includes all day entertainment, kids' games, cook-offs, and more!


We invite local businesses to sponsor our event, apply to be a vendor, or enter your best salsa, red chile dish, or green chile dish! Commercial/Restaurant winners earn year-long bragging rights to the best in their division.

Test your skills at the cook-off!

Be a part of the Deming tradition! Enter your best Salsa, Green Chile Dish, or Red Chile Dish to see how you stack up!
