This was a magical experience for us. We sang, danced and listened to awesome bands representing many different styles and combinations of styles of music. Everybody was friendly, and the setting under the cottonwood trees was perfect!
Loved this festival and all the opportunities for learning and enjoying music! Definitely want to attend again next year. This was our first time.
We did however experience confusion on where the entrance was and where to pick up our online purchased tickets. There could have been more help and more signage at the entrance and at the ticket tables.
If you could provide more chairs and tables in shady places to sit and eat, it would be greatly appreciated. Maybe utilize some of your older students as helpers and guides.
More advance notice of total workshops and full schedule as well as a way to sign up ahead online would also be quite helpful
Please keep offering this and maybe expand to Friday as well so one could attend more things that were scheduled at the same times making it hard to choose.
Is there a place to sign up to get emails

Fun and relaxing day to spend with family and/or friends. Listen to wonderful music and discover new musical artists. Many opportunities to participate in activities during the festival as well as a craft show!

About Albuquerque Folk Festival
In an outdoor/indoor setting filled with acoustic music and dancing, the Albuquerque Folk Festival perpetuates the American folk tradition and engages the community in international music performances. During the festival, four performance stages will showcase the talent of more than 40 musical acts including headliners Ben Hunter & Joe Seamons, Danny Santos, T Sisters, Higher Ground Bluegrass, Nrityasudha L.L.C, The Cowboy Way Trio, Le Chat Lunatique, Duke City Swampcoolers, and many others. Here is the full lineup for this years event.
Festival goers who prefer to strum their own instruments can compete alongside a random group of instrumentalists at the band scramble, sign up to perform on a first-come first-serve basis at the Sign-Up Stage, or play in open jam sessions. Workshops teach techniques for playing instruments and styles such as Klezmer music, Mountain dulcimer, and mandolin, while dance lessons focus on how to move freely during contra or execute a Highland Schottische without losing your kilt in front of passing strangers.
