SEPTEMBER 28, 2019

Celebrating nine years of Fire, Food & Fun, our 2019 Fired Up community festival, a family-oriented celebration of our town, will occur on Saturday, September 29th, at the Historic Railroad Depot Plaza in the old downtown region of Tucumcari, New Mexico.   Admission is free for all attendees!

An action-packed array of entertainment is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. with live music by country group Bakersfield Twang, kid’s contests, fire dancing performances by crowd favorite Odd-Lab, family circus fun by Clan Tynker, and a fiery car show! 

Along with all this explosive action, Fired Up will feature homegrown food, arts & crafts and unique clothing vendors along the new Breezeway Project and  2nd Street corridor.  We haven’t forgotten the kids either with numerous games and activities located in our “Kids Corner” and the Prince Tocum and Princess Kari Contest. Be sure and check out the dunk tank for your chance to dunk some local government officials!

As darkness begins to descend on the festival, the fire and thunder will appear with our world class fireworks display scheduled to end this year’s celebration at 9 p.m.  

Join us for the incredible sights, sounds and smells of an Eastern New Mexico community event that successfully attracts more than 3,000 attendees from around the region!
