This traditional harvest festival closes out the Questa Farmers Market for the year, and, hosts the annual burning of Cucui. Like Zozobra burned in Santa Fe, Cucuii is a regional Boogeyman, one children were warned of if they strayed into dangerous behavior. Before Cucui is burned, you can write your worries, your penas, and tuck them in Cucui’s clothes to watch them go up in smoke.
The celebration includes music by local bands, crafts, and traditional foods, along with the last of the autumn crops, jellies, honey, baked goods and more.
