As a celebration of world music and culture, ¡Globalquerque! features a wide range of international performers as well as artists from New Mexico’s varied musical traditions. The festival also features free educational workshops, community outreach events, the best in world music (17 - 20 artists from 5 continents on 3 stages over the course of 3 days) and the Global Village of Craft, Culture & Cuisine featuring food and crafts from around the world for sale.

The Global Village of Craft, Culture & Cuisine includes artisan, craft and food vendors highlighting New Mexico’s (and beyond!) diverse local and ethnic communities - our Global Villagers!  Vendors will have a fantastic opportunity to sell to an estimated audience of over 6,000 participants during the festivals’s free daytime  and ticketed evening events. Non-food vendors are expected to be open and staffed from 4 PM to 8 PM on Friday and 10:30 AM to 8 PM on Saturday. Food booths are expected to stay open until 10 PM all nights. All booths are welcome to remain open until festival close. All vendors are welcome to be open during our Thursday Opening ¡Global Headphone Dance Party, which takes place 6:30 PM until about 11:30 PM.  Please note that ¡Globalquerque! celebrates global music, arts and culture and our vendors reflect that.  Take a look at our 2019 vendors for a sense of what we look for in a Global Villager.

¡Globalquerque! and the NHCC will embark on a major marketing campaign for the festival. Visit our Supporters page to see the various groups already involved in the event.

Reserve your spot early, as spaces are limited. Food booths are $500, and all other booths are $200. Vendor booths are curated. Official applications are sent after a pre-approval screening. Vendor fees are non-refundable.
