DECEMBER LUMINARIA NIGHT
December 4, 2014
Over 700 luminarias will be placed on the grounds of the National Historic Site and their candles lit for this annual holiday celebration. The Spanish words luminaria and farrolito mean little lights or flames. This Hispanic tradition is widely practiced in New Mexico and has been presented at Hubbell Trading Post each December since the early 1990s.
We only accept items from artists who may register their artwork for the auction from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM; Monday to Thursday. Auction items are registered and sold in numeric order so artists are encouraged to register early to secure low lot numbers. We do not accept items for the auction on Friday and Saturday.
