Chimayó Cultural Preservation Association

The Chimayó Cultural Preservation Association’s mission is to celebrate and preserve the living culture, land, and history of the Chimayó region. We fulfill our mission through a variety of programs including Los Maestros del Norte, an educational program for youth to learn the hands-on skills of New Mexican folk art; Los Tesoros, an annual award program to honor elderly Chimayó residents; the Chimayó Museum, dedicated to inspiring and educating the public about the history and culture of Chimayó and surrounding communities; and a building restoration program, dedicated to preserving and protecting historic buildings. The CCPA also organizes and hosts community events, such as an annual San Isidro Celebration.
