We’ll have some great attractions, including:

Saint Ambrose Honey Farm – Belen, NM Sebastian Martinez, Beekeeper

St. Ambrose Honey Company

Sebastian will be on-site with fresh honey to sell, providing information on the critical role of bees and our environment.

Nestled in the Rio Grande Valley near Belén, New Mexico lie the apiaries of Saint Ambrose Honey Company. Our mission is to raise healthy, thriving bees and provide our community with the raw organic honey provided to us by them. For centuries, our Spanish ancestors raised bees and brought them to New Mexico. When you enjoy our honey, you are experiencing “A Taste of History”, a long tradition steeped in our faith and way of life. Welcome to our family!

Rocky Mountain Youth Corps – Wyatt Lane, Logistics Coordinator

RMYC members will be on-site later afternoon through evening “Busing for Tips”. Amore will donate a percentage of proceeds to their organization.Rocky Mountain Youth Corps

Rocky Mountain Youth Corps Mission: Rocky Mountain Youth Corps is a stepping stone to new opportunities. We inspire young adults to make a positive difference in themselves and their communities. Through training and service, corpsmembers discover their potential for healthy, productive lives.

Rocky Mountain Youth Corps has transformed the lives of more than 2,000 disenfranchised youth between the ages of 16 – 24, in its twenty-two years of existence. This transformation has taken place by providing paid employment and on-the-job training in marketable and transferable skill-sets. Those skill-sets were acquired through the completion of meaningful conservation and community service projects throughout the state of New Mexico. Our employment and on-the-job training opportunities have empowered disenfranchised youth to strive for economic sustainability and newer pathways to continuing education opportunities.

Over the next three years, Rocky Mountain Youth Corps will expand its work with disenfranchised youth throughout the state of New Mexico by increasing our number of paid employment and on-the-job-training opportunities. Our goal is to increase the number of youth we train in addition to increasing the number of conservation and community service projects we complete.

Since increasing the number of youth we serve is our ultimate goal, Rocky Mountain Youth Corps would like to spend the next three years:

Identifying new partnerships, such as NM State Parks,

Identifying new and diverse programming to better serve our communities, and

Invest in ensuring our programs are of the highest qualities and standards in the nation.

Entertainment

Live entertainment will start at 5pm with local band Eugene playing 5-7pm and then a DJ from 7:30-9:30pm!

Eugene – “Rhythm and Blues, fostered in New Orleans and at home in Albuquerque.

Born at sea and nurtured in the port of New Orleans, Eugene is the son of Poseidon and daughter of the Voodoo Queen. 

The band was founded through a mutual love of the Blues & 70’s Rock, and a passion for performance. Eugene sings of triumph, unrequited love, and characters from the lowest crevices of the underworld, to the furthest reaches of Olympus. 

We call it Neo-Rhythm & Blues.
