Since 2010, the New Mexico History Museum (NMHM) has been presenting talks about Fred Harvey history, which have grown into the annual Fred Harvey History Weekend and the Fred Harvey Foodie Dinner & Auction at La Fonda on the Plaza. Ticket revenue will benefit NMHM, home of the nation’s only major permanent exhibit which combines Fred Harvey, the Harvey Girls, Harvey design guru Mary Colter, the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway, Native American art, and Southwest history.
This year’s Fred Harvey History Weekend will be held November 12-15, 2021, and will include lectures at NMHM on Friday & Saturday and the Fred Harvey Foodie Dinner & Auction at La Fonda on Friday. And on Sunday, the “FredHead” fun shifts to Las Vegas, NM at the restored Castaneda Hotel with tours and two meals with limited seating: Sunday dinner at Kin restaurant, and Monday breakfast at Bar Castaneda.
