Saturday, November 2-Sunday, November 3
Forget the Black Friday sales and cross a few people off your list early while enjoying a weekend in Dixon, aka a desert landscape filled with stunning orchards and farmlands. For the past 38 years, more than 40 artists in the area open up their studios for an entire weekend to visitors, selling pottery, paintings, and other original works as part of the Dixon Studio Tour. The entire village (which is only about an hour drive from Santa Fe, by the way) comes out to celebrate, including La Mesa Farm, whose owner Ron Monsour shows off his botanical photography while offering up apple cider, atole, posole, tortillas, and pupusas.
Cost: The tour is free, art and food prices vary
