Many Local Events Have been Cancelled

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic our community has made the difficult decision to cancel many local events in 2020. Your safety and the safety of our town is our priority and we look forward to seeing you soon. In the meantime experience Taos from a distance.

If you are planning to visit Taos, please review the statewide travel guidelines.

Taos has a music scene that belies its small town size.
Many musicians call Taos home and its energetic bars, wineries, and brew pubs bring in top notch artists and crowds from around the region. Come for a festival or just enjoy the nightly music scene. Every night in Taos you will find live music in eclectic venues. View our full events calendar.
