Valles Caldera National Preserve

Jemez Mountains Elk Festival

Free Family Fun Day!
September 24, 2016 2:00 PM – 7:00 PM

Valles Caldera National Preserve is home to one of the largest elk herds in New Mexico. Each fall, the sound of elk bugling in the mountains marks the start of their mating season, known as the ‘rut’.

To celebrate the upcoming elk rut and to learn about this fascinating creature, the National Park Service will host the 8th Annual Jemez Mountains Elk Festival on September 24th from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.

This FREE festival will feature a food truck, bugling contest, solar telescope display, and loads of fun interactive activities for the entire family. Wildlife experts will also be on hand to answer visitor questions about elk and other Jemez Mountains wildlife.
