Family Music Festival at Wildlife West

Family Music Festival at Wildlife West

Two new bands will perform at Wildlife West Nature Park’s Family Music Festival this Saturday, July 29, 2023, in Edgewood. The Jammin’ Time Band, who have been performing together for more than 10 years, kicks off the event at 4:30 p.m. This fun and lively Albuquerque band is no snooze when it comes to boot stompin’, truly rockin’ music. Then at 7 p.m. local singer and guitarist, Steve Hall, will play music featuring a rhythmic finger-picking guitar style with elements of pop, folk, country, and bluegrass selections from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s with a few contemporary pieces thrown in. 

Between performances visit the wildlife zoo and experience 20 species of native wildlife including 2 curious cougars, 4 adorable tree climbing grey foxes, a magnificent bald eagle, the largest black bear in New Mexico, and all the other friendly wildlife and raptors.  Enjoy dinner in the park from local venders and watch a free-flight raptor show.

Future Saturday night Family Music Festivals will be held on August 12 and 26, and Labor Day weekend September 2, 2023.  Two bands perform at each Festival and all performances are held in an all-weather covered amphitheater with an old west atmosphere. Tickets are $20 per person and youth 17 years and younger are free. Call Wildlife West Nature Park to get your tickets at 505-281-7655 or at the door the night of the music festival.

Recommended Lodging

Yurts At Hyde Memorial State Park

Connect with the heart of nature in Hyde Memorial State Park's ponderosa pine mountain forest, where three yurts provide a unique lodging experience that's rooted in an ancient nomadic tradition. Each yurt contains six single beds that can be grouped together in various configurations. Kick back in your outside activity area, with a fire ring, dining table and food safe, to keep the critters away. Vault toilets and water are just a short walk away.
