New Year’s Eve on the Plaza -

Ringing in the New Year is a big deal for many, and why should that be any different for The City Different? Since 2015, Santa Fe has been giving the heave ho to the old year, and welcoming a peaceful and prosperous new one, with a community celebration on Santa Fe Plaza, highlighted by the rising (not dropping) of a Zia symbol, created by a traditional Spanish colonial artisan. Live music, bonfires, food and drink, and more draw hundreds to New Year’s Eve on the Plaza, on the last day of the year, Sunday, December 31, 2023.

The festivities begin at 8 p.m., with cozy piñon bonfires lining the Plaza, live music filling the air and food trucks providing sustenance. Grab a hot cocoa and tune in to the sounds of some favorite local bands on the bandstand. As midnight nears, the traditional countdown heralds the rising of the Zia, followed by a fireworks display launched from the roof of the historic La Fonda on the Plaza. The evening wraps up with a sing-along of Auld Lang Syne and Las Mañanitas, led by Santa Fe’s mayor and “sung in a spirit of unity to say Bienvenidos to 2023.” Just remember to dress warmly. Winter in Santa Fe is the real deal!
