About Us

The New Mexico State Society (NMSS) provides a unique opportunity for New Mexicans to meet, network, and socialize with other New Mexicans living in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.

NMSS hosts a wide range of activities throughout the year. These include a New Mexico tent at the Spring Virginia Gold Cup, 4 Corners Summer Barbeque, Fall Green Chile Roast, and Winter Holiday Fiesta. 

As proud New Mexicans we host numerous events for all things New Mexico. NMSS members enjoy Aggie/Lobo game watch parties, New Mexico T-shirt get-togethers, and red/green chile themed dinners held in conjuction with the New Mexico Department of Agriculture. NMSS also sponsors the New Mexico Cherry Blossom Princess during Washington, DC’s famous Cherry Blossom Festival.

Last but definitely not least, we host a recurring monthly happy hour called Thirsty Thursday.

Whether you are a New Mexican currently living in Washington, DC or are a New Mexican new to the area, we invite you to become a NMSS member.
