GCMF Sneak Peak

Not only will there be live music, but unique vendors, delicious food and drinks, and a DJ present downtown. During the day there will be a Kids Zone, Mechanical Bull, and Santa Fe Axe Throwing.

Raton is located at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in Northeastern New Mexico along I-25, which makes for the perfect wild west backdrop for concerts, plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities, and a spontaneous Labor Day Weekend getaway. Come as a stranger, and leave as family.
