Gardner Hippie Days

Hippie Days is a celebration of Libre, a community in Gardner established in the late 1960s as an alternative to traditional American life.

Libre is filled with families or individuals who have built their own homes. These structures, as well as the land on which they are built, can never be sold. This is why Libre has endured since 1968, while the other communes of northern New Mexico and Southern Colorado are long gone.

Each summer, Libre is honored during Hippie Days, a two-day festival that includes artist booths, tie-dye t-shirts, bell bottoms, acoustic music, poetry, and food vendors. Vendors are particularly focused on sustainable and ethically made products from around the world.
