In addition to generating revenue, agritourism can promote local products and public awareness about them. It can also increase appreciation of agriculture and its many contributions to the community. For example:

  • Lavender in the Village is an annual July event that showcases the historic agricultural lands in the valley and small businesses on 4th Street, Rio Grande Boulevard, and Chavez Road.
  • The Maize Maze occurs annually in the fall when 10 acres of corn fields are cut into an elaborate labyrinth. Rio Grande Community Farms leases land from Albuquerque City Open Space to demonstrate the possibilities of urban agriculture The maze is the organization's annual fundraiser.
  • The New Mexico Wine Festival at Bernalillo is the state's biggest and oldest wine festival and is held annually on Labor Day Weekend. It features live entertainment, food, high quality arts and crafts and 20 or more New Mexico wineries.
