In Spring, breathe in the sweet scent of lilacs around every corner or celebrate Mom with some free music and family fun. In summer, catch some live opera, dance the night away at a fiesta, or run up and over a mountain. In fall, celebrate Oktoberfest in true alpine splendor, take in some sheep shearing, or kick back in the park for a weekend of live music. And in winter—when you’re not skiing, that is—raise a glass of vino or cocoa in celebration of all that Taos has to offer.
