On Saturday, August 29 and Sunday August 30, from 10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. El Rancho de las Golondrinas will host Fiesta De Los Ninos or Children?s Celebration. There will be crafts and demonstrations for children of all ages. For children 12 and under admission is free, otherwise it is $8. Events include making a miniature adobe house, learning to weave on a mini loom, washing clothes the old fashioned way on a washboard, shooting a bow and arrow and learning to tin stamp all while dressing up like a Spanish settler. In addition you can make your own rope and a trade bead necklace.
Other happenings include partaking in the sights and sounds of Baile Espanol de Santa Fe, taking a mule-drawn wagon ride, a magic show and many more. There will also be bread and peach cobbler served out of the adobe horno at noon just in time for lunch.
Costumed interpreters will be located all around the 200-acre ranch to enhance the experience as well and there will be artisians demonstrating traditional crafts including blacksmithing, carving, hide tanning, woodworking, baking, tinsmithing, milling, spinning, weaving and much more. El Rancho de las Golondrinas has been creating memories for over 300 years. The event is sponsored in part by NMHC and more information on the event can be found at
