Red River is known for its diversity of festivals and live music scene. It’s of the many things that makes the town of Red River so special. A music or wine festival is fun just about anywhere, but enjoying an event like that in the cool air, surrounded by the beauty of the mountains makes those experiences more memorable.

  • Red River Songwriter’s Festival (February)

  • Red River Car Show (June)
  • Art and Wine Festival (June)
