Welcome the New Year to Santa Fe, NM at a fun, FREE party on Tuesday, December 31, 2019!
Round up your family, friends and visitors to ring in the New Year and be part of the fun as The City Different says Adios to 2019 at the Fifth Annual New Year’s Eve on the Santa Fe Plaza.
The free festivities begin at 8:00 pm, with the Plaza warmed by stationary heaters and cozy piñon bonfires scenting the night air with a comforting only-in-New-Mexico fragrance.
Heat up the night with hot tunes from Sol Fire, Fun Adixx, Alex Maryol and Chango on the Santa Fe Bandstand, as The Kiwanis Club of Santa Fe provides free hot chocolate and bizcochitos (New Mexico’s official state cookie), along with a memorial banner for all to write down their hopes and dreams for a Prospero Año Nuevo in 2020. Food trucks will be onsite to satisfy those end-of-year cravings.
At 11:45 p.m., Mayor Alan Webber and city officials will invite the crowd to begin the countdown to a peaceful and prosperous new year. In recognition of Santa Fe’s signature status as The City Different, nothing will dropǃ When the traditional countdown ends, a sparkling Zia symbol hand-crafted by a traditional local artisan will rise at the stroke of midnight.
The Zia will rise with a backdrop of festive fireworks launched from Santa Fe’s oldest and most historic hotel, La Fonda on the Plaza, lighting the night sky with colorǃ We’ll welcome the New Year to Santa with the age-old songs, Auld Lang Syne and Las Mañanitas, sung in a spirit of unity to say Bienvenidos to 2020ǃ
