Feliz Navidad

Free, family-friendly events light up the holidays in The City Different. See why Christmas at the Palace, the lighting of the menorah on the Plaza, Las Posadas (a re-enactment of the holy family’s search for shelter) and the farolito walk on Canyon Road have become beloved traditions for locals and visitors alike. Celebrate the feast day of the Virgin of Guadalupe, and learn why she is the “first lady of Santa Fe.” Witness the illumination of the Jémez State Monument and explore Chocolate, Maté y Mas, the newest exhibit at the Museum of International Folk Art. Light the way home with Hanukkah doughnuts or roast pork and posole—a traditional norteño Christmas Eve meal. Need something stronger? A visit three small-batch New Mexico distilleries will lift your spirits.
