In The Community
Aspenfest Cancelled for 2020 The Ruidoso Valley Chamber of Commerce has been closely monitoring the ever-evolving COVID-19 crisis. Based on the high degree of uncertainty about what the coming months will hold; in accordance with the New Mexico Department of Health’s public orders that continue to prohibit mass gatherings and parades; and in the best interest of the general public and our volunteers, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Aspenfest Parade and Party. We realize this is a cherished community event and this decision was very difficult and was not made lightly. However, the health and safety of the community is very important to us. Let’s all work together to make sure our businesses can remain open and our children can get back to school. We appreciate the understanding of the community.
