Bring your appetite with you when you attend the festival, and get ready for a good time.
Wait a second. You don’t know what the festival is? Sit back and learn about this festival, and mark your calendar so you can attend.
What Is the Chile Cheese Festival?
To put it simply, the Chile Cheese Festival celebrates two things that the people of New Mexico love. It celebrates chiles, and it celebrates cheese.
You’ll head to downtown Roswell to attend the festival, and as soon as you get close, you will smell freshly roasted chiles. You don’t have to just smell them, either. Once you arrive, you can get a red chile ristra or a roasted green chile from Graves Farm and Garden. You can also make your own ristra. That way, you can make it just as you like it and then devour it.
Then, there will be the Green Chile Stew Championship. If you have some mad cooking skills, you can enter and try to win some money and a trophy. Talk about earning some bragging rights. You know your green chile stew is good. Now, it’s time to let everyone else in on your secret. You’ll be the talk of the festival after you wow everyone with your cooking skills.
That covers the chiles, but what about the cheese?
While you’re at the festival, you can take a tour of the Leprino Cheese Plant. Learn how the cheese is made so you can understand why it tastes so good. The tour costs a few bucks, but it’s well worth the money.
Fun for the Family
It might be named the Chile Cheese Festival, but that’s only part of what this festival offers. There will be a petting zoo, and it won’t be your average kids’ zoo. You can actually pet a kangaroo or a zebra. There will also be crafts and collectibles to buy.
The 2017 Chile Cheese Festival is going to be amazing. Do you know what else is amazing? The vehicles at Roswell Hyundai in Roswell, New Mexico. Head over and see them for yourself, and you will understand why so many people choose a Hyundai. Safe, durable, and attractive, these vehicles are perfect for everyone. It doesn’t matter what kind of style you have. There’s a Hyundai with your name on it.
