A craft cocktail festival during a balloon glow.
The Department of Arts & Culture has partnered with the New Mexico Distillers Guild to present Lift Your Spirits, a craft cocktail festival. Distilleries will be mixing up signature cocktails and educating guests about their creations and methods. Grab a drink from a distillery, some local cuisine from a food truck, shop from an assortment of handmade products, listen to a variety of bands, and enjoy the best view of Balloon Fiesta Park in Albuquerque.
Lift Your Spirits is a rain or shine event and will continue regardless of the balloon glow program. Event guests are welcome to bring blankets and chairs to setup in the lawn for a great view of Balloon Fiesta Park.
Members of the New Mexico Distillers Guild will be ready to mix specialty drinks using their own distilled, handcrafted spirits.
Adults 21+ should bring valid identification.
Enjoy the original music of three local bands as they perform while you drink cocktails and enjoy the view of the balloon glow and fireworks.
Browse from a variety of handmade products created by local artisans. Shoppers can find jewelry, candles, kitchen ware, and home décor from businesses you’ll come to know and love.
A variety of food trucks will be cooking up delicious eats to pair with cocktails.
