Summertime fun doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Summerfest offers great free family entertainment on Civic Plaza every Saturday!

Albuquerque Summerfest is a multi-cultural extravaganza held every Saturday evening from 6:00 – 10:00pm. The event features free live music, dancing, and demonstrations on the stage, along with food vendors, a beer garden, arts and crafts market, and plenty of free kids’ activities, such as face painting, bounce houses, juggling, magic, and more.

Summerfest kicks off this Saturday, June 20 (2009), with Cajun/Zydeco night. Them Cajuns know how to par-tay, so this should be great fun!

Transportation and parking are always an issue with downtown events, so here are a few suggestions:

  • Park for $6 in the garage beneath Civic Plaza (access from Third and Marquette)
  • Park for free at Wells Fargo Bank or Laz Parking’s surface (outside) lot, both on Third Street just north of Roma
  • Take RapidRide’s “Rapid After Dark” service for just a buck a ride — or buy a $15 pass that gives you unlimited rides all summer long

Albuquerque Summerfest is free to the public. You can bring your own beverages and food, but no glass containers or alcohol.

Civic Plaza is located at 1 Civic Plaza. Der. That’s in downtown Albuquerque.
