The Mayor’s Sunday is Funday is the 17th annual event that brings our community together for an afternoon of fun and sharing what’s going on in Rio Rancho.

In 2021, well over 6000 of our neighbors came together to enjoy one of the coolest and most exciting events of the summer.
We have some exciting events and musical entertainment, along with budget friendly food, at this fun family style picnic.

The booth participants each bring their own creativity and entertainment.

Over 120 booth vendors occupying over 145 booth spaces including sponsors such as Blue Cross Blue Shield, The Learning Experience, UNM Health, PNM, Waste Management and New Mexico Bank and Trust will be there to tell their stories.
