Summerfest

In the interest of limiting the spread and reducing the risk of coronavirus (COVID-19), the State of New Mexico, City of Albuquerque, and local health authorities are canceling or postponing all indoor events and programs as well as larger outdoor events at City facilities for the foreseeable future. Social distancing is the most effective step we can take to protect the public’s health. We take the health of our community, staff, artists, and guests very seriously and we look forward to many successful events in the future.

Summerfest Black Logo

Summertime in Albuquerque means warm weather, outdoor fun and Albuquerque Summerfest. These large-scale music events are free, family-friendly community gatherings that are held throughout the summer. Located around the city and with fun activities for all ages, the whole family will want to attend them all.

Summerfests are an Albuquerque tradition dating back to the 1980s. Summerfests are free community events around town. They feature children's activities such as face painting, inflatable jumpies, and climbing walls, a microbrew garden for those who are of age, an artisan market full of handcrafted goods by local craftsmen, food trucks and more. It is fun for all ages.

The best part of Summerfest is the live entertainment. Each Summerfest brings both local and national talent of all genres. Previous national headliners include The Wailers, Morris Day and the Time, Wynonna & the Big Noise, Ozomatli, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic and Clint Black.

Summerfest concerts bring the crowd and keep the party going all night. Come out and enjoy the sounds of summer!
