¡Globalquerque!, New Mexico’s Annual Celebration of World Music and Culture, has become a premiere festival in the Southwest since its inception in 2005. The purpose of this annual music and culture festival is to highlight cultures of the world alongside the traditional cultures of New Mexico. The event utilizes multiple stages at the NHCC, including the Plaza Mayor, the Albuquerque Journal Theatre, and the History and Literary Arts courtyard (the Fountain Stage), and features a Global Village of Craft, Culture, and Cuisine and a variety of workshops, demonstrations, and other family activities, along with two nights of performances from around the globe. The festival has featured numerous artists from Spain and Latin American countries, as well as Hispanic artists from New Mexico. Some of these artists have performed at the NHCC at other events comprising part of the Performing Arts program’s seasonal programming.
