FAQs: Can I bring my pet? No, pets are NOT allowed at Southern New Mexico State Fairgrounds. Not even my iddy-biddy Chihuahua in my purse? The fairgrounds policy is no pets. You’ll have to leave them at home. Can I bring in something to drink? You may bring in closed (sealed) bottles of water or soda ONLY. No outside alcohol is allowed into the fairgrounds, and no open containers are allowed out the gate. This wine festival is under a Public Celebration Permit for wineries only and no other type of alcohol may be consumed on site as per NM State law. Can I bring my children? You may bring YOUR children and those for whom you are the legal guardian, but not those that aren’t your own. You MAY NOT bring your niece/nephew/neighbor/friend of your child. What if it rains? Please visit www.weather.com for information about the zip code 88007. This is the zip code for New Mexico State Fairgrounds and you may find it is raining in Las Cruces or else where in Dona Ana County , but not at the fairgrounds. Our summer storms are sporadic and pass quickly. The festival will not close unless weather is extreme or dangerous. Otherwise, we appreciate the cooling effect of the rain and continue the celebration. There will be no refunds for weather-related reasons. What sort of payment do you accept? We take cash and credit cards. Look for signs for credit card lines. Can I get tickets in advance? Yes and we encourage that, especially for Sunday! You can purchase tickets online before the festival (link provided at least 30 days prior to event). Print your unique ticket and bring it to the festival to be scanned in. When you arrive with a pre-purchased ticket, proceed directly to the entrance labeled “Online Tickets and Press.” You do not need to wait in the long lines. This is especially beneficial on Sunday, our busiest day. Can I bring my own cooler? No coolers are allowed at the wine festival.
