NEW YEAR’S EVE ON THE SANTA FE PLAZA

NEW YEAR'S EVE ON THE SANTA FE PLAZA

Ring in the New Year in Santa Fe, New Mexico, on Saturday, December 31, 2022 at a FREE, fun, festive party as we say ¡Adios! to 2022 at the 8th Annual New Year's Eve on the Santa Fe Plaza.

The free festivities begin at 8 pm with the Plaza warmed by stationary heaters and cozy piñon bonfires scenting the night air. Heat up the night with live music on the Santa Fe Bandstand. The Kiwanis Club of Santa Fe will provide free biscochitos, New Mexico’s official state cookie while supplies last.

At 11:45 p.m., Mayor Alan Webber and city officials will invite the crowd to count down to a peaceful, prosperous new year. When the countdown ends, a colorful Zia symbol hand-crafted by a traditional local artisan will rise at the stroke of midnight. The Zia will rise against a backdrop of sparkling fireworks launched from Santa Fe's most historic hotel, La Fonda on the Plaza. The night sky will be alight with a blaze of colors as we welcome the New Year to Santa Fe, America's oldest capital city, with the age-old songs, Auld Lang Syne and Las Mañanitas, sung in a spirit of unity to say ¡Bienvenidos! to 2023ǃ
