About Festivals in Albuquerque

The first thing that jumps to mind when people talk about Festivals in Albuquerque is the annual Balloon Fiesta. This is a week-long celebration that features hot air balloons from all over the world. This popular festival fills the air with bright colors, but there is much to do on the ground as well.

Albuquerque isn't all about hot air, the area is home to some amazing other festivals and events as well. There are several Albuquerque music festivals that you should visit. One thing to be sure to check out is Globalquerque! There is also the Rockstar Energy Drink Music Festival for rock and pop music lovers. It is best to book rooms and make dinner reservations early, these festivals bring a lot of music fans into town and many plan their stay well in advance.

There are many more Albuquerque events that can suit anyone's taste for the old, new, or adventurous. There are three events that shouldn't be missed - the State Fair, the Jewelry and Craft Show, and the Southwest Burlesque Review. The last of those events brings in performers from all over the nation and Canada, they just do the revues in different regions to promote the best in burlesque. Albuquerque serves up excitement in style in so many ways everyone will find what they like there.
