New Year’s Eve in the Santa Fe Plaza
The fifth edition of Santa Fe’s New Year’s Eve on the Plaza will be underway December 31st in the city’s centuries-old town square, which is just a stone’s throw from La Posada de Santa Fe Resort & Spa.
It’s a lovely festival that draws together community members and out-of-town visitors alike. Things kick off at 8 PM as the Plaza warms up with heaters and crackling bonfires of piñon wood, the aroma of which summons the very essence of the Southwestern landscape. The Santa Fe Bandstand will come alive with music from a variety of performers: Sol Fire, Fun Adixx, Alex Maryol, and Chango.
Meanwhile, courtesy of the Kiwanis Club of Santa Fe, there’ll be free hot chocolate on offer as well as New Mexico’s official (and delicious) state cookie, the bizcochito, plus a memorial banner upon which anyone can write goals, dreams, wishes, and other aspirations for the New Year (and the new decade!).
There’ll be a number of food trucks on hand to attend to appetites as revelers one and all enjoy the merry atmosphere, live entertainment, and beautifully decorated Plaza, a truly iconic city center.
The formal countdown to 2020’s grand entry will be launched at 11:45 PM by the mayor and other city officials. At the stroke of midnight, a traditional Zia symbol will be raised to the flashing extravagance of fireworks, and the crowd will sing “Auld Land Syne” and “Las Mañanitas.”
It’s a magical way to usher in the New Year, gathered together on the hallowed ground of the Santa Fe Plaza, heart of America’s oldest capital city for so many generations.
