You can obtain information on current events in the Taos News, published every Thursday. The Taos County Chamber of Commerce (tel. 800/732-TAOS [8267] or 575/758-3873; publishes semiannual listings of Taos County Events, as well as the annual Taos Country Vacation Guide that also lists events and happenings around town.
