Luxury Hotel for Santa Fe Bandstand

Join us this summer for the finest luxury hospitality in the New Mexico Capital here at La Posada de Santa Fe, and you’ll be just steps from some truly fabulous live music courtesy of Santa Fe Bandstand!

Introducing Santa Fe Bandstand

Santa Fe Bandstand is a free festival of summer concerts held in the historic Santa Fe Plaza (just a stone’s throw from La Posada de Santa Fe) and SWAN Park on the south side of the city.

This year’s concert season kicks off on Wednesday, June 19th and runs through August 10th. Santa Fe Bandstand typically runs Tuesday through Saturday during its eight weeks, with the “Southside Series” concerts at SWAN Park going down on July Saturdays.

These evening concerts are a wonderful chance to hear some amazing artists do their stuff free of charge, and meanwhile enjoy a picnic meal under Santa Fe’s summer skies.
