Manufacturing Day

A Nationwide Celebration of Makers 

Manufacturing Day is a national initiative that puts a spotlight on manufacturing. In New Mexico, it’s a month-long spotlight on New Mexico-made products and the 30,000 New Mexicans working in the manufacturing industry. It’s an opportunity to enhance public knowledge about the economic impact of manufacturing in our state, highlight resources, and introduce students to careers in manufacturing.

Celebrated every October, events include tours of manufacturing facilities and presentations that demonstrate the vast range of products made in New Mexico. Most events are open to the public.

If you are a manufacturer, please consider hosting a tour in 2024 to show students the exciting careers that await them.  Download the Host Toolkit and email us at mfgday [at] to put your company on the Manufacturing Day map. Introduce a student to manufacturing and make an impact on the next generation of manufacturers! This is why it’s important.
