The Hot Springs Festival on May 13th-15th, 2016 in Truth or Consequences New Mexico is an event built on the cornerstones of healthy lifestyles, alternative medicine, and sustainable living.

The 3-day festival offers a variety of activities for attendees including music, speakers, workshops, field trips, food, dancing, and vendors of hand-crafted and natural items.

As Truth or Consequences boasts 9 Commercial Hot Springs in its Historic Hot Springs District, visitors will have plenty of opportunities to revive their mind, body, and spirit. The various activities are designed to elevate the quality of life of the festival goers.

Blackstone Hotsprings will be offering guided tours of the site of our new outdoor hot spring pools (currently under construction, anticipate their opening summer of 2016) during the entire weekend of events.

The Solar Buzz will be providing rides from 9am-6pm within the T or C city limits for only $1! Leave your car in an easy-to-park place and explore the Festival. For a ride call the Solar Buzz at 575-740-1988.
