Roasting chiles in New Mexico

For years, I've wanted to visit New Mexico when they're roasting chiles. And now it appears I have an excuse for a road trip that goes through there. I assume this happens in the autumn, and I know, sort of, about the Hatch Chile Festival. But where (else) does this actually happen? And how does one find out, beyond smelling the aroma from a short distance away? I have visions of someone setting up in a high school parking lot and folks paying X amount per pound to have their chiles roasted....

Information, please! Thanks---
