Zoo Music and Summer Nights Concerts at the Albuquerque Bio Park

I got my water bill today. I love getting the water bill because it always has fun info in it. This time we got a few things besides the bill, but I was really happy to see the line up for this summer’s Albuquerque’s Zoo Music Concerts at the Rio Grande Zoo and Summer Nights Concerts at the Aquarium and Botanic Garden.

Both venues have lawn seating, so bring blankets and chairs. (We can provide blankets for our Albuquerque Bed and Breakfast guests, just ask!) You may bring food in to either venue, or purchase from vendors along with beer and wine, which you may NOT byob.

    It appears that you have the days and dates for the Zoo Concert and the BioPark Concerts listed incorrectly. The Zoo concerts start on Friday June 17, not June 18 and the BioPark concerts start on Thursday June 16, not June 17. Am I correct in this? If not, please let me know. Thank you–Carolyn Kirkpatrick
