Tres-o de Mayo: Kenny Chavez' 8th Annual Cinco de Mayo Folk Art and Music Festival

¡Órale! Fiesta Skirt at La Parada
¡Órale! Fiesta Skirt at La Parada

Ladies and gentlemen, don your fiesta skirts and your pom-pom-fringed sombreros: Kenny Chavez’ 8th Annual Cinco de Mayo Folk Art & Music Festival returns in all its kitschy, colorful glory to the North Valley with over 30 artists, three bands and a Wild Fiesta Skirt Contest for women and men at 1:45pm.

Tomorrow, May 3 (because who wants to festejar on a Monday?), peruse charming recycled, folk, handmade and mixed-media art from artists like Dagwood Reeves, aka El Melvix, whose painted papier mâché creatures and masks are like three-dimensional cartoons; Dorothy Hawkins, who offers tinkertoy-esque woodwork décor; Tami Sioux and her reimagined flatware; and the folks at Otra Vuelta Tire Recycling of Los Ojos, N. Mex., who create durable mats and bowls. The erstwhile owner of the In Crowd and current manager at Masks y Más, Kenny Chavez himself, will debut what he calls “bottle shrines,” cheerful hangings worked in wire, bottlecaps, tin and glass. Paint the town rojo from 9am till 4pm at La Parada Mercantile (8917 Fourth Street NW), and enjoy food and drink from Farm and Table Restaurant on the patio. Any cash you bring will go toward enriching your life with some art, because the fiesta is completely free. Visit bit.ly/folkart8 for more info.
