The Dixon Studio Tour returns for 2021!

When: November 6th & 7th, 2021
Where: Dixon, New Mexico
More Information: Please visit the Dixon Studio Tour website

The Dixon Studio Tour is one of the oldest continuously run studio tours in the state. Dixon, nestled in the Embudo Valley in Northern New Mexico where the Rio Embudo flows into the Rio Grande, has been long known for its rich Native American and Hispanic heritage, productive farm lands and pastoral beauty. During the last 30+ years many artists moved to the valley to pursue their artistic talent and a simpler way of life.


The thirty-seventh annual Dixon Studio Tour will take place Saturday and Sunday November 3rd and 4th, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.  Dixon is located 50 miles north of Santa Fe and 25 miles south of Taos.  Forty-four artists, craftspeople, and local businesses will be displaying their wares.Artist from Dixon Studio Tour
