Winter Activities

Artesia MainStreet and the Artesia Car Enthusiasts cordially invite you to our 18th Annual Main Event Car Show and Cruise!!  This two day event is being held March 28th and 29th, and kicks off Friday night with a show of cars cruising down Mainstreet.  Dozens of rare, classic and one-of-a-kind cars from around the U.S will be on display Saturday morning in Heritage Plaza (behind the Ocotillo Performing Arts Center). Smokin on the Pecos will be serving up coffee, hot coco and breakfast burritos in the morning, and hotdogs and hamburgers for hungry car buffs, so come hungry.  The Ocotillo Performing Arts Center is offering two great shows Friday and Saturday- that fit right in with our classic cars and classic music.
