Special Events


The heart of Santa Fe, New Mexico, is the historic Santa Fe Plaza, the sight of traditional adobe dwellings and exciting events throughout the year. A visit to the Plaza is a must during your Santa Fe travels. The Plaza is the cultural center of Santa Fe, an historic district that combines the best of yesterday with the innovation of today. Visitors will find historic adobe dwellings, art galleries, restaurants, and more. It’s the site of the Palace of the Governors as well as a variety of fairs and festivals throughout the year.

The winter season in Santa Fe provides a festive opportunity to experience Santa Fe’s cultural and historic uniqueness. You will experience an abundance of events that blend Native American, Hispanic and Western traditions. December’s offerings include the not to be missed Annual Santa Fe Film Festival, the Annual Winter Spanish Market, Winter Pueblo Feast Days and Dances at various pueblos, the Annual Christmas Faroito Walk as well as the opening of famous Santa Fe Ski Basin.
