As summer cools down, the Village of Hatch heats up. Labor Day weekend heralds the annual Hatch Chile Festival, a two-day celebration of our world-famous crop. The festival attracts over 30,000 visitors from all over the United States, including such notables as the Food Network and the BBC. Festival goers can sample famed chile recipes, watch the crowning of the Chile Festival Wueen, or toss a horseshoe in celebration of our most famous crop. The event also features chile ristra contests, artisan and food booths, live music and a carnival. Red or Green?
