Franciscan Festival of Fine Arts set for this weekend

The Franciscan Festival of Fine Arts will be held again this Labor Day weekend, September 5 and 6, 2015 at Holy Cross Retreat Center, 600 Holy Cross Road, Mesilla Park, New Mexico.

Featuring over 80 artists, many of them new to the Festival this year; live music, a beer and wine garden, enchilada dinner and food vendors, this year’s Festival is anticipated to attract over 5,400 people from the surrounding area.

Holy Cross Retreat Center is a unique gem in the community.  The original house is over 100 years old.  The grounds are an oasis of serenity, surrounded by a pecan grove and containing many picturesque gardens and an attentive and friendly staff.

This year we completed construction of Holy Cross Chapel, a beautiful mission style chapel which seats 200.

Local artisans have filled the Chapel with exquisite furniture, Stations of the Cross, and statues.  A rosary garden and labyrinth are part of the Chapel’s landscaping.

Amajor goal of the Franciscan Art Festival is showcasing the Retreat Center to the public. The festival runs 9 to 5 Saturday and 10 to 4 Sunday.
