Santa Fe is famous for its heady mix of fine arts, culture, history and high desert scenery.
The summer season starts strong in May and goes through mid-September with events like Indian Market, Spanish Market, Fiesta de Santa Fe, the Chamber Music Festival and the New Mexico Jazz Festival.
In the fall, The Met: Live in HD series begins as does the popular National Theatre Live series from London.
Winter brings Aspen Santa Fe Ballet's The Nutrcracker and performances from our local performing arts groups for the holidays.
