The New Mexico Folk Music and Dance Society - FolkMADS - is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to promoting and teaching traditional music and dance. FolkMADS sponsors Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Taos contra dances, Megabands, concerts, camps, and other special events.


Note to visiting musicians and dancers:

If you will be coming to New Mexico to attend one of our events, or timing your trip through NM to coincide with an event, and you need lodging, please let us know. We may be able to provide housing with one of our members.

If you're a member of a similar organization elsewhere, be sure to mention that at the admission table at our events.  We'll extend our member discount to you!
