Albuquerque is known internationally for the annual Balloon Fiesta that occurs early each fall, filling our skies with luminous, colorful balloons. But we have lots of other celebrations here as well – Mariachi Spectacular, Dia de los Muertos, Tattoo Fiesta, Twinkle Lights Parade, Globalquerque, and many more.

COMING UP: Freedom 4th is the best place to celebrate Independence Day in Albuquerque, and it’s free! Headliner Thompson Square will have the whole family dancing, and you won’t believe the amazing fireworks show afterward! For VIP treatment, buy tickets to the exclusive Firecracker Café!
