Albuquerque enjoys the Westside Summerfest

August 10, 2018 by  

This summer, Albuquerque will be hosting the Westside Summerfest.

This festival is a free combination of artisan market, food and beer celebration, and concert. There will be live entertainment through most of the event, as well as an adults only beer garden. Food trucks will be in attendance, giving people many different choices, and perhaps some they would not normally see.

Local artisans will be setting up booths and will be selling their wares, including everything from pottery and home goods to jewelry and body products. The beer garden will feature many different breweries from the area.

The live entertainment consists of four groups: Isaac Aragon & The Healing, Citizens of Tape City, Red Light Cameras, and Ozomatli. Isaac Aragon is known as a group with soul, and its music focuses on positive messages. Citizens of Tape City aims to create music that is uniquely theirs, and incorporates elements of R&B, pop, progressive rock, and funk. Red Light Cameras is a blues-inspired garage pop group, with upbeat songs. The headliner, Ozomatli, has a unique style incorporating Latin-inspired rock and alternative music, among other genres.

With banner printing often used to help advertise event like this, it is currently scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 18, from 4:00 pm until approximately 10:00 pm. The event is free, and free parking is available at the Cibola High School lot.
