These are free programs and great for both genders. Free aprons and eye protection are usually included and available for take-home. Certificates are personalized and offered at the end for successful completion of the project. Lowe's gives a patch and a sticker. Home Depot gives a pin for clothing.

http://www.abqfolkfest.org/ The Albuquerque Folk Festival is a non-profit event held with the goal of increasing the public's participation in music, dance and other folk activities. The 2008 Festival (our tenth annual!) will be held Saturday, June 21, 2008 at the State Fairgrounds (Expo New Mexico) in Albuquerque. In the tradition of the folk ethic, the goals of the Albuquerque Folk Festival are to highlight non-commercial acoustic folk music and dance activities in the greater Albuquerque region and to encourage individuals to sing, dance and play music.
Bring the kids! Along with a special venue just for Li'l Folks, kids are welcome throughout the festival. This year, Niños Flamencos, a group of young Flamenco dancers from the National Institute of Flamenco's National Conservatory of Flamenco Arts, will be appearing on the Main Stage. Also, at 10 am, JUBAlation, a group of young musicians will perform, and the Chinese Martial Artists group always features young performers. New this year: Two children's fiddle contests!
