Fair West Parking Changes – 2018 New Mexico State Fair

Part of living in the Fair West Neighborhood is experiencing the sights and sounds of the NM State Fair. Due to rising costs, the city is no longer able to provide No Parking signs throughout the Fair West Neighborhood and parking passes for the neighbors. For the past couple of years, this has caused problems and confusion.


This year the FWNA board has collaborated with our city councilors and the mayor’s offices, APD and the EXPO NM to develop a strategy that we hope will work for all. The only parking signs will be No Event Parking signs at the entrances to the neighborhood on the North, East and South sides. Fair West neighbors will not receive passes but will but will be able to park on the street as usual.

APD will be creating a Parking Enforcement Team to parole and enforce any illegal parking. Report any parking problems by calling 311 or 242-COPS.

Please spread the word that the State Fair provides free, weekend Park & Ride service from the southwest lot of the Coronado Mall. See All NM State Fair Parking Options
