And you're invited to the party! 

In 2019, New Mexico will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the legendary music store, The Candyman Strings & Things! 


We will celebrate The Candyman's past accomplishments while saluting its efforts today as it remains on an enduring path to an even brighter future. The Candyman continues to blaze new trails with a constant hunger to contribute to a vibrant music community and strives to fulfill its mission, “Making lives better through the joy of making music, since 1969.”

So, here’s to celebrating our rich past as we look ahead to the next 50 years. We hope you take a look at the ways we are celebrating below and join the celebration by participating in all of the activities we have planned. We will be continually adding new ways to celebrate here, so check back often!


In the meantime, be sure to join the conversation about this tremendous celebration and all the wonderful memories of 50 years on Facebook and our other social media outlets.
