Folk Farm Yardfest: A Shindig for Pez Fillers and Pie Eaters

Say farewell to summer, and meet some of Albuquirky’s most whimsically creative folks tomorrow at the Folk Farm Yardfest from 10am to 3pm. The schedule includes a Pez-filling contest at 12:40pm, an all-ages superhero contest at 1:40pm and a pie-eating contest at 2:40pm. Word has it that reigning champion David Koch is the eater to beat. The Yardfest’s extravaganza of affordable homegrown art is helmed by folk artist Steve White, whose line of Pez dispensers altered to resemble musicians, devils, politicians and characters from “Breaking Bad” has brought him something approaching fame. Other artists include Jeff Sipe, Doc Atomic, Goldie Garcia, the Gelvin Family and many others. Don’t miss out on a quick-sketch portrait from “Albuquerque’s Rembrandt,” Leo Neufeld. The Folk Farm Yardfest takes place near Highland Park, at the Folk Farm (White’s offbeat casa at 313 1/2 High SE). The tunes begin at noon, so you can boogie to Albuquerque’s Frank McCulloch and Melody, Steve Stembridge and the legendary Jimmy Stallings, known as both the former bassist for the Sir Douglas Quintet and as J.J. Light. The family-friendly Yardfest is free, but bring your cash to take some of the madcap visual feast home with you. Call 702-2093 if you need to know more.
