Kick off the summer by boogie-ing downtown at this annual mashup of a music festival and environment sustainability fair — Q Jam!

This FREE event will be held Saturday, May 23 (2009) from 2:00 – 7:15pm — rain or shine — at Civic Plaza. Featured musical performers are Andy Davis, Carrie Rodriguez, and the Gin Blossoms.

In addition to music, there will be kids’ entertainment, a bike rodeo, clowns, jugglers, dancers, food vendors (or bring your own — but no alcohol), and a bunch of exhibitors, including:

  • Albuquerque Electric Cycles
  • Grand Canyon Trust
  • Greenpeace
  • La Montanita Coop
  • NM Solar Energy Association
  • Sierra Club

and many others. Plus, attendees who come via ABQ Ride or by bike can obtain a free Q Jam t-shirt! And the City of Albuquerque and Tree New Mexico will be giving away free saplings while they last.

This is a great way to learn about sustainable living while getting out and enjoying the sunshine and some fantastic musical entertainment!

Harry E. Kinney Civic Plaza is located in the heart of downtown Albuquerque.
