Take a break and dance the weekend away! The 7th Annual Gate City Music Festival (GCMF) is coming our way. The annual GCMF is a fun, praised event that will be taking place on Labor Day Weekend, Saturday through Sunday, Sept. 3-4, 2022
Raton is located at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in Northeastern New Mexico along I-25, which makes for the perfect wild west backdrop for concerts, plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities, and a spontaneous Labor Day Weekend getaway. Come as a stranger, and leave as family.
This year Keith Anderson will be headlining at the gorgeous Historic Shuler Theater on Sunday evening. As always, Will and Crystal Yates and Colfax Reunion will be here to kick off the headline act.
The whole family can partake in fun activities throughout the weekend, and enjoy free live music on Historic First Street. Catch the musical acts of Tiffany Dawn, Secondhand, Sister Mary Mayhem, 3rinity, and Cappton Reid. Not only will there be live music, but unique vendors, delicious food and drinks, and a DJ downtown.
