Fred Harvey History Weekend will begin Thursday, October 26 at 3 PM with a free showing of "The Harvey Girls" in the New Mexico History Museum auditorium. There will be a full afternoon of lectures at the museum on Friday 10/27 beginning at noon, and that evening we will debut the new "FredHead Reception" in the museum lobby, with drinks, light food and socializing. Saturday 10/28 lectures begin at noon, followed at 6 PM by the Fred Harvey Foodie Dinner & Auction at La Fonda on the Plaza.

On Sunday morning at 11 am there will be another showing of "The Harvey Girls" at the museum. And then the weekend shifts to Las Vegas, NM where there will be tours of restored Harvey buildings, a lecture, and a private Fred Harvey-themed dinner at Kin at Castaneda, and a farewell breakfast the next morning.

Individual tickets to the Foodie Dinner and Auction on October 28th at La Fonda on the Plaza will again be $150, which includes a cocktail hour beginning at 6 PM, four-course dinner and a special gift of Mimbreno China--designed by Mary Colter and replicated (and donated) by HF Coors--in a commemorative box.

Ticket prices for the history museum lectures have been lowered to $50 in-person (for one, non-reserved seat in the auditorium on both days of talks) and $25 for online access only. Those attending in-person, and online, will get exclusive access to the recordings of the talks.

Visiting FredHeads will want to have hotel rooms booked in Santa Fe starting either 10/26 or 10/27, and a room in Las Vegas on 10/29.

Enjoy a discounted room rate at La Fonda on the Plaza (for $199) and at the Old Santa Fe Inn (for $179.)   For the online link for La Fonda reservations CLICK HERE
