Join us as we paint Albuquerque green, with our Celtic community, in celebration of Saint Patrick’s Day and help support High Desert Pipes and Drums and the Albuquerque Balloon Museum Foundation.

Revel in the excitement with themed activities throughout the day. A jam-packed stage of Celtic music and dance featuring The Ansolver Family Band, Moonshine Blind, Los Metamorfos, with special guest Rory Kirwan, and many more. Engaging activities for the little ones, including circus performers, arts & crafts projects, face painting, rock wall, bike rodeo, bounce houses, and more.

Tasty food selections, artisan vendors, hands on demonstrations, and interactive displays will deliver all day fun and entertainment for everyone. Beer, Wine & Spirits will be available for purchase.

The All Fun, No Run Zero K (0.0 Mi) will allow attendees to experience the shortest race of their life while supporting a good cause.
