Dive into this immersive experience that highlights the crucial role New Mexico plays in pioneering our journey to the stars, with presentations, interactive tech exhibits, a startup showcase, and art installations inspired by the cosmos.

The Albuquerque Railyards, built in the 1800s-1900s, once employed 25% of Albuquerque’s workforce. Today, it is being revitalized for various uses such as Railyards Markets visited by over 150,000 people per year and the future home of the New Mexico Media Academy and Central New Mexico Community College’s film & media programs. Space Fiesta will be in the 25,000 sqft Blacksmith Shop with presentations in the neighboring 9,000 sqft Flue Shop. What an amazing historic venue to reflect on our progress to the stars!
