Hatch, New Mexico - Hatch Chile Festival 2006

Every year more than 30,000 raving chile fanatics converge on the tiny village of Hatch (increasing the population by nearly 28,000), the Chile Capital of the World, for this Labor Day weekend festival. The festival is always Labor Day weekend on Saturday and Sunday only!

Events include a chile cook-off, chile roasting, a parade culminating with the coronation of a Chile Queen, chile pod competition, carnival rides and fiddling contests. Get there by 10 a.m. on Saturday or you'll miss out.  As for lodging, you might want to look into Las Cruces, Truth or Consequences, or Deming, NM,  for reservations as the village of Hatch only has 2 motels.
