About

Vintage Albuquerque began 28 years ago, to help the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra fund their music in the schools program. Eight years ago, Vintage Albuquerque became an independent 501C3 non-profit charitable organization chartered to raise money to support arts education for New Mexico kids. In addition to supporting the NMSO for 18 years, Vintage Albuquerque has raised money for the Albuquerque Museum Foundation, Albuquerque Youth Symphony, Arts in the School, APS Fine Arts Program, New Mexico Jazz Workshop, New Mexico Philharmonic, Popejoy Hall, NDI-New Mexico, and others.

The Biggest & Best
Charitable Wine Event
in the Southwest.

There are many wine & food festivals. But none exists solely for the purpose of raising money for arts education programs benefiting young students, whose lives can be transformed by exposure & instruction in music, dance, visual art, creative writing, theater, & media arts. Now, for the 28th year, we’re at it again.

Our Cause

The arts in New Mexico public schools have been severely reduced and, in some cases, eliminated. It is crucial to expose children to creativity and expression at an early age and througout their educational experience. New Mexico is blessed with a culture of creativity that can allow us to thrive for generations to come, if we take advantage of early opportunities. Funds distributed through Vintage Albuquerque support arts, music, dance, theater and other artistic education programs.

Thank you to all our great sponsors, donors and friends for a great 2018 event!!
