Lana will take place in the Village of Arroyo Seco about 10 minutes north of Taos, NM.
There will be events taking place throughout the village, but the main event will be held at Taos Mountain Lodging and Retreat Center, just a 4 minute walk from the center of theVillage of Arroyo Seco.
Once you enter Arroyo Seco, you will see an information booth at Scott Carlson Pottery (on your right as you enter Arroyo Seco, coming from Taos).
You will also see "LANA PARKING" signs. Please park in these designated areas.
There is no parking at the retreat center, where Lana is taking place, so please find a place to park in Arroyo Seco.*
There will be signs guiding you towards the actual event, just a short walk (less than 5 mins) from the center of Arroyo Seco.
Please be cautious while you walk towards the main event as, well, this is New Mexico and not everyone heeds traffic laws like they should.
Enjoy the short walk up to the event, along a beautiful country road you may never have walked before, with cottonwoods golden overhead and the acequia (river) running by your side.
*There will be handicapped parking at the main event at the retreat center, just follow the signs, as well as, the ability to drop off members of your party.

Arroyo Seco is called "The Jewel of Taos County" for a reason...
For years I have wanted to take a vacation in a little artsy town in the Southwest, with farm-to-table restaurants, coffee shops, beautiful Airbnbs, shops filled with local crafts, "local" bars and wonderful people.... then I realized I live here."

Be it an ice cream cone from Taos Cow or fine art print from the JLI Gallery, every purchase made during your time in Arroyo Seco will make the local merchants happy to see LANA (and other events like this) happen again.
We are very excited about LANA and hope this marks the beginning of an annual celebration for us fiber lovers. But, in order to make this happen, we need the merchants of Arroyo Seco to be happy about this event. Our visitors can help to make this happen by supporting the local businesses.
