Resting at the foot of the rugged Organ Mountains and along the banks of the Rio Grande, Las Cruces, New Mexico is more than just the crossroads of two interstates. It is the Cultural Crossroads of the Southwest, and a gateway to the past.
While the bustling lanes of Interstates 10 and 25 converge on the Mesilla Valley, Las Cruces stands as a timeless symbol of history and festivity. With warm weather and 350 days of sunshine a year, Las Cruces offers travelers a wide range of outdoor activities, museums, shopping and many diverse events and festivals that will help make your meeting or convention a memorable one.
Las Cruces has over 2,800 rooms and numerous meeting areas equipped to handle groups of various sizes and needs. Convention attendees can experience our age old culture and heritage through annual festivals and events including the International Mariachi Conference, Southern New Mexico Wine Festival, Renaissance ArtsFaire, the Hatch Chile Festival, Cowboy Days and Frontier Day to name a few. Take a day trip to White Sands National Monument or Ft. Selden both less than an hour a way. With everything it has to offer, it’s no wonder Las Cruces is steadily becoming one of the Southwest’s premier destinations.
