Santa Fe is a city rich with Native American and Spanish history. The culture that started several hundred years radiates throughout the city through architecture, food, art and cultural events. Santa Fe’s beauty inspires artists of across the globe. The art galleries are some of the best in the world and offer unique paintings and sculptures. Georgia o’Keeffe called the area home and you can see the Santa Fe inspiration in her work.
For a smaller city (60,000+ population) we have some large events both in size and popularity. The Santa Fe Indian Market is a 95-year-old Native art market and is the largest and most prestigious Native arts show in the world. Santa Fe Fiestas is a week long celebration of Santa Fe culture, which is kicked off by the Burning of Zozobra. The Zozobra celebration can bring in around 50,000 people to the event and is a must see for those new to Fiestas. Our craft brew scene is strong with beer artisans making some delicious products from one of New Mexico’s growing industries. If you’re seeking outdoor adventure, the mountains that surround us are calling. Santa Fe is can be yours for the taking; you just have to know where to look.
This is just a few things that happens every year here.
