Yuletide 2021-2022

It’s the winter holiday season again! During this time, we like to encourage locals and visitors to shop in our downtown MainStreet district. There are over 240 businesses to buy gifts or giftcards from for your loved ones.

For the 2021-2022 Yuletide season, Taos MainStreet will have several programs in our district:

  • Farolitos – we will be installing electric farolitos on the tops of downtown businesses the week after Thanksgiving. The cost for installation/removal is $100 flat fee per business, plus a discounted cost of each farolito strand if needed. See more information on our Farolitos page or contact us if you are interested: admin@taosmainstreet.org.
