A Santa Fe Christmas is Pure Magic!

Christmas in Santa Fe is the most magical time of the year!

Christmas time around the world is absolutely spectacular. Every country, region, and city have their own unique spin on the classic holiday – including Santa Fe. If you’ve ever ventured to the enchanting city of Santa Fe, you know just how much we love the winter holidays!
With so many events and traditions, Christmas in Santa Fe is simply magical. If you’re looking for a Christmas vacation destination, there’s no place better than Santa Fe for the holidays.

Plan your vacation, to include some of our favorites events in December:
• December 7 – Christmas at the Palace
• December 14 – 16 –  Santa Fe Winter Indian Market
• December 15 – 16 – Aspen Santa Fe Ballet presents The Nutcracker
• December 15 – 23 – Santa Fe Desert Chorale Winter Festival
• December 24 – Canyon Road Farolito Walk
• December 24 – Midnight Mass at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis
• December 25 – Hanukkah on the Plaza – 5PM
• December 31 – New Year’s Eve on the Plaza
For a full listing of events, click here.
Although Santa Fe is filled to the brim with Christmas and holiday events starting after Thanksgiving weekend, one of the best things to do is simply take it all in. Go for a walk downtown and see the shops and landmarks glowing with holiday lights. Watch as shoppers and locals travel throughout the downtown area with a smile on.
The Santa Fe area, while popular, miraculously tends to stay uncrowded during the holidays (with the exception of the actual holiday days). This creates a one-of-a-kind, unmatched holiday atmosphere. Here is where you’ll find true holiday magic. Children peering through shop windows, adults greeting each other with “Merry Christmas!” and “Happy Holidays”. Santa Fe truly knows what the holiday season is all about.
Experience the Farolito Walk! 
Ready for the most breathtaking Santa Fe Christmas experience yet? As the most favored Santa Fe tradition, the Farolito Walk should not be missed. Canyon Road on Christmas Eve lights up with farolitos (sand filled paper bags with votive candles) and it is such a glorious sight. The entire road is lined with farolitos, creating a marvelous and unparalleled environment.
When you visit Santa Fe this winter, make it a point to participate in the Farolito Walk – words simply cannot do it justice.
 As you plan your December vacation, be sure to book with us, for the perfect rental!
