The City of Albuquerque kicks off summer in style with Heights Summerfest on Saturday, June 11. Hosted at North Domingo Park, the festival starts at 5 p.m. and features a diverse lineup: Rusted Root (alt.bluegrass/jam band), The Porter Draw (alt.country/Americana), Alex Maryol (blues/rock) and Cali Shaw Band (folk-rock).
During national headliner Rusted Root’s 26-year history, the band has shared the stage with acts like Santana, Dave Matthews and The Allman Brothers Band. Shake your booty, score snacks from local food trucks and enjoy a beer in the Microbrew Garden.
Free activities for kids include face painting and a 25-foot rock climbing wall. Thirty-five local vendors will peddle their wares — everything from soap to jewelry to salsa — at the festival market. Learn more at cabq.gov
