ABQ People's Festival 2014
A True Peoples Gathering
When an event lists “Vendors! Vendors! Vendors!” on its flyer, you know that it means business. But that's not all the Albuquerque Peoples Festival has to offer. The fest happens Saturday, Nov. 8, from 9am to 8pm, and Sunday, Nov. 9, from 9am to 5pm at Balloon Fiesta Park (5500 Balloon Fiesta Pkwy.). The goal of this celebration isn't just for New Mexicans to show what they do best (be it comedy, music, food, etc.), but for New Mexicans to come together and celebrate the fact that we all live in a land without a setting sun, a true Land of Enchantment. And to put some money back into local businesses. Musicians like Cuarenta y Cinco, Samuel D and Blue Ventures will strut their stuff on the stage, while guests can partake in a pie-eating contest, laugh at the outlandish stylings of Xtreme Komedy and cook up some magic with matanza, chile and salsa competitions. Mind you, this is just the most minor of glimpses. You'll have to head there to see this extravaganza in all its glory. Regular tickets are $10, but you can get in for a fiver with three non-perishable food items. How's that for giving back? (Mark Lopez)
