Ring in New Years Eve on the Plaza with family, friends and visitors in Santa Fe, NM, on Friday, December 31, 2021.
Join us for a FREE, fun, festive party when The City Different says ¡Adios! to 2021 at the 7th Annual New Year’s Eve on the Santa Fe Plaza.
The free festivities begin at 8 p.m. with the Plaza warmed by stationary heaters and cozy piñon bonfires scenting the night air.
Three cool bands (TBD) heat up the night with live music from on the Santa Fe Bandstand, and the Kiwanis Club of Santa Fe provides free hot chocolate and biscochitos, New Mexico’s official state cookie while supplies last.
At 11:45 p.m., Mayor and city officials will invite the crowd to count down to a peaceful, prosperous new year.
In recognition of Santa Fe’s status as #TheCityDifferent, nothing will drop. When the countdown ends, a sparkling Zia symbol hand-crafted by a traditional local artisan will rise at the stroke of midnight.
The Zia will rise against a backdrop of festive fireworks launched from Santa Fe’s oldest and 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 2022ǃ
