Online Payment Options for El Zócalo Plaza & Event Center

Sandoval County is happy to announce that we are beginning to accept new reservations for events scheduled after July 1st 2021 at El Zócalo Plaza.

Due to the evolving health order requirements for venues and events, Sandoval County is limiting deposits and payments arrangements. At this time, if you wish to reserve El Zócalo Plaza for an event, we are only accepting payments of $500 that can be applied as a damage deposit for the venue. This deposit will also hold the venue for the date of your choosing, based on availability.

If you wish to reserve an event date on our calendar it is important that you pay only this amount. At this time we will not accept any additional payments toward reserved events.

Additional payment instructions will be provided to you as we approach your event date and on based on the then-current state of the reopening strategy as mandated by the state of New Mexico.

We're pleased to be able to offer a variety of online payment options. Online payments may be submitted using your VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, bank debit card, or by electronic transfer from your checking account.

Sandoval County does not receive any proceeds from convenience fees. All fees collected are applied to transaction costs incurred for processing the payment. Payments may be mailed to or paid in person.
