New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum

Las Cruces UkeFest 2022, except for the Friday evening concert, will be held at the beautiful New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum. This state-run facility offers us several workshop spaces. In your free time, you can explore the indoor and outdoor exhibits, with everything from art and history to goats and milking cows.

The museum is located just off Interstate 25 in Las Cruces at 4100 Dripping Springs Road. Take the University exit (Exit 1) and go east 1.5 miles.

Atkinson Recital Hall

The Friday night concert will be held at the New Mexico State University Atkinson Center for the Performing Arts, giving us plenty of room for ukulele lovers to attend the concert. It is located in the NMSU Music Building, just south of the new Center for the Arts, off University on Espina. Parking is indicated in the second map below.
