We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit literary, literacy and arts organization that sponsors year long arts activities as well as the longest running New Mexico book festival each April. We are located at Casa Camino Real, an old adobe building on the Camino Real Trail and the original Las Cruces town site.


The Annual Border Book Festival, New Mexico's longest running book festival, takes place in April. The theme for 2012 is Raíces Reales del  Camino Real/Real/Royal Roots of the Camino Real.  Festival dates are April 19-21, 2012. Ongoing activities include book signings, workshops, panels, storytelling, literary and arts events both at our homebase, Casa Camino Real, as well as many outreach locations throughout the city and region. We sell first edition, rare, out of print and new and used books, specializing in Border, Native American, Chicano/a/Latino/a and southwestern literature. We have online book and art sales.
