The quaint and lovely town of Madrid, NM located between Santa Fe and Albuquerque on Turquoise trail (Hwy 14) held its annual CrawDaddy Blues Festival on May 1-2, 2010.

 
The event hosted by The Mine Shaft Tavern had a nice turn out. The event boasted live entertainment, plenty of fresh boiled crawfish, shrimp, and BBQ with flowing drinks at the town’s ballpark. Not even the short sporadic hail dampened the day or stopped the festival goers from having a good time. The large white tent, tables, and chairs provided all the needed comforts to eat, drink, and kick back with good people.
 
The town of Madrid, NM was once a coal mining town and later a ghost town. Today it boasts shops of art displaying their work throughout town. Madrid, NM has flourished into a bustling community of about 300. It was also front and center during the filming of Wild Hogs starring John Travolta, Martin Lawrence, Tim Allen, William H. Macy, and a list of other stars.
 
When doing the tourist thing this spring or summer, Madrid is a great stop. The scenic drive on the turquoise trail is picture perfect for those photo enthusiasts. Visitors can take a stroll, shop, take a tour of a mine, or stop for delicious food and drinks at The Mine Shaft Tavern where you will feel like family.
