Movies on the Green Community Day

The Town of Taos presents Movies on the Green Community Day along with LOR Foundation, Taos Public Library, Friends of the Taos Public Library, Youth & Family Center and the Taos News. We will be hosting the first annual Movies on the Green Community Day, a family-focused event to celebrate our community, on Wednesday, July 27, 2022, from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM at the Historic Kit Carson Park located at 211 Paseo del Pueblo Norte.

Movies on the Green Community Day is a part of Movies on the Green weekly program which provides our community family-oriented movies on the Video Wall. This is an alcohol-free event.

A special guest appearance from Clifford the Big Red Dog, the American children’s book series about the adventures of a precocious girl named Emil Elizabeth and her titular pet, a giant, red-furred dog name Clifford. Clifford is known for the great stories and learning activities that help youth learn to read and enjoy reading.

Bring the kids to visit Clifford! Clifford, with help from our very own Mayor Maestas and Sonya Struck, LOR Foundation Taos Community Officer, will be handing out 200 Clifford Reading Books to the community youth attending the event! Taos Academy Charter High School Student Advisory Council will provide a photo opportunity with Clifford. If you would like a 4 x 6 photo, the cost will be $3.00.

Live music by local talent Gabriella Salazar y Su Grupo Concepto on the George Chacon Stage from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM and the movie Clifford The Big Red Dog showing at 7:30 PM on the Video Wall. Short films from students of Film Prize Junior New Mexico will screen before the movie. Community exhibits will be set up with information, games, fundraising, etc., including a Meet and Greet with Little Miss Rodeo NM, Olivia Tafoya. Come and enjoy the offerings of: Taos High School Cheer and Loteria Paleteria Local food vendors

If you are an organization or business, it is not too late to reserve your FREE exhibit space. Community Day is a day for our community. We are inviting our community, local businesses, organizations, churches, charities and the school district to have booths that include information, activities, crafts, etc. Local charities and organizations rely on community events to help them gain exposure and aid their fundraising efforts. This event will also be great publicity for local businesses. Sign up early to secure your exhibit booth space as applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Application deadline is July 26, 2022.

Together as a community we want the first annual Movies on the Green Community Day to be remembered, where our youth will have great memories of visits with Clifford and will have pictures and their own reading book. Other memories will be watching the movie on the Video Wall, the entertainment, spending time with friends, family and our community! We strongly feel this event will be a huge success and are planning on scheduling the Movies on the Green Community Day once a month next season.

Note the time change of the movie Clifford The Big Red Dog showing starts at 7:30 PM instead of its regular scheduled time during Movies on the Green.
