The suppers include a traditional Chuckwagon show, including a barbecue dinner, wildlife presentation, our unique falcon show, plus a western music show or bluegrass band. The barbecue dinner includes brisket, chicken, ranch beans, baked potato, rolls, apple sauce, cookies, lemonade, coffee, and water. A vegetarian option, substituting a tasty salad for the brisket and chicken, is also available. Shows take place rain or shine in our all-weather amphitheater. New Mexico can get cool after sunset, so make sure to bring a jacket or other warm garments!
Just before the show starts, a special free-flight Peregrine Falcon demonstration will be presented by world-renowned falconer Tom Smylie. The audience will experience these magnificent birds close up and learn how the fastest raptor on earth survives in the wild. A puppet show, created by youth, tells a fun and heart-warming story of other animals in the Park.
Join us for dinner and music at one of central New Mexico's most enjoyable attractions, just 20 minutes east of Albuquerque in Edgewood! The park is open to Chuckwagon guests at 5:30; the falcon show begins at 6:00; hayrides run from 6:00 to 7:00; and dinner is served at 7:00. The music starts approximately 8:00 and usually runs for about an hour.
Reservations are required by 2:00 PM on the day of the show; vegetarian options must be requested at time of reservation.
