Celebrate St. Paddy's During NM ShamRock Fest

Press Release [ Sat Feb 11 2017 11:00 AM ]

NM ShamRock Fest returns to the Albuquerque International Balloon Museum on Saturday, March 11 in what could quite possibly be the greenest jam-packed St. Patrick's Day celebration in town.

From 11am to 6pm, NM ShamRock Fest will feature two stages with performances by Irish singing groups, Celtic fiddle groups, bagpipe and drum bands, dancers and choral ensembles. Fest goers are invited to take part in various Celtic games alongside NM Celtic Athletics and mix it up with The Albuquerque Gaelic Football Team. Other activities include a climbing wall, remote control balloon demonstration, face painting and arts and crafts for the little ones. Handmade crafts will also be available for purchase.

New to this year's NM ShamRock Fest is the inaugural NM ShamRock 'n Roll 5K (3.1 miles), Kids 1K and No Run Zero K (0.0 miles). The All Fun, No Run Zero K will be the perfect event for people who prefer to stay put. Everyone wins in the less-than-strenuous Zero K. One-hundred percent of the Zero K registration fee goes directly to the Balloon Museum Foundation in direct support of the Museum's educational and public programs.

A 5K Run and Fitness Walk (certified by USAT&F) is available for the more series runners. And for kids 4-12 there is a 1K Kids Fun Run. Participants of all the races are encouraged to dress up in their best St. Patrick's Day themed costume. Prizes will be awarded to the runners and costume contest participants. All race entries include a NM ShamRock 'n Roll t-shirt and other valuable items from a number of great Balloon Museum and TCR-affiliated merchants.

NM ShamRock 'n Roll pricing and registration information can be found at goo.gl/ssW3GP. Admission tickets to only the NM ShamRock Fest are $2-6 (in advance) and $5-10 at the gate.

What's a St. Patrick's Day celebration without some Celtic-themed grub? The Scottish Pie Shop, Cheesy Street, Green Growler Smoothies, Ready to Roll, Street Food Institute and Royal Empire Catering will be onsite. Those with a valid I.D may choose beer, wine and spirits provided by O'Neill's.

The City of Albuquerque, High Desert Pipes and Drums and TCR Race Productions are presenting this fun day. The mission of High Desert Pipes and Drums is to foster and promote Scottish culture and music, to perform locally, regionally, and throughout the western United States, and to teach the Great Highland Bagpipe & Drums in the tradition as taught by previous professional instructors from Scotland and other countries. Funds raised at NM ShamRock Fest will benefit High Desert Pipes and Drums.

TCR specializes in the planning, packaging, management and timing of participant sporting events. Based in Albuquerque, TCR is the leading participant sporting production company in the Southwest.

This Celtic celebration is made possible by these generous sponsors: Albuquerque Tents, Shamrock's Discount Janitor Supply, O'Niell's, Admiral Beverage Corporation, IATSE Local 480, Quality Buick GMC Mazda by DiLorenzo, Fleet Feet Sports Albuquerque, 93.3 KOB FM Radio, 99.5 Magic FM Radio and 94.5 KKOB Radio.

A call for artisans! Participation is open to those artisan and craft vendors who meet and adhere to all the City's guidelines. Vendors are welcome to apply now by going to goo.gl/vUz3hv.
