GLOBAL VILLAGE of CRAFT, CULTURE & CUISINE
Due to continuing state health regulation and reopening directive changes during the planning of this year's festival, the organizers have decided that the Global Village will not be hosting any non-food vendors.
There will be international food, drink, wine and beer available.
We will be accepting inquiries for non-food vendors for 2022 in January.
We thank you for your understanding as we all emerge into the light...

The Global Village of Craft, Culture & Cuisine is always a special highlight of ¡Globalquerque! With approximately 30 booths of international crafts, culture and cuisine available for your browsing and shopping pleasure, you are sure to find something to delight your senses. Come early so you’ll have plenty of time to explore the diverse artisan offerings and enjoy a glass of Vívac wine, a cold selection of Santa Fe Brewing Co. suds, or a warm specialty coffee from Casa Brew Coffee, along with a tasty variety of international food choices!
Food and drink will be available until late in the evening, but the craft booths will shut down around 8 or 9.

The exotic locale of Lamu Island, off the coast of Kenya, with its fusion of Swahili of European, Arabic and Indian influences, is at the heart of Owner-Chef Ahmed Obo’s spirited cuisine. It was there, in his mother’s aromatic kitchen, that Ahmed mastered his homeland’s unique gastronomic delights, beginning a culinary adventure that would ultimately lead him to New Mexico.

Vivác Winery is the creation of brothers Jesse and Chris Padberg, along with their wives, Michele and Liliana Padberg, respectively. In November of 1998 Jesse and Chris embarked on a new mission: “to make the best wine possible and have a good time doing it!” This meant professionally crafted, world-ranked, dry red wines—a first for New Mexico. Through extensive travel around the world and mentorships with other local winemakers, they learned about the wine business in general and more specifically about the wine business in Northern New Mexico. The word “Vivác” is a Spanish term meaning “high-altitude refuge,” and Vivác Winery is just that. With record-breaking ratings in Wine Enthusiast Magazine, Vivác Winery has earned the title of “Highest Rated Red Wine Producer in New Mexico’s History.” With a commitment to excellence, the Vivác Winery family has pushed the boundaries of what New Mexico wine can be! Vivác Winery is the official vino provider of ¡Globalquerque!
