Tradition: Santa Fe’s Guiding Light

Acequia Madre Area 5

Santa Fe is a place of unparalleled history. Descending from two distinct cultures, the present-day city takes tremendous pride in honoring the traditions of both the Native Americans and the Hispanic peoples. When the paths of two cultures cross as they do in Santa Fe, the result becomes a beautiful blend of festive, fun and meaningful celebrations.


The story begins with the Native American people. Adding splashes of vibrant color to the land of Northern New Mexico, Pueblo Indian dances and feast days take place throughout the winter season and have become a cherished event to attend, a window into Santa Fe’s deepest roots.

Hispanic celebrations include Los Posadas, a traditional Spanish outdoor play which all join in. The many luminaras and farolitos that light up Santa Fe in the darkness of winter are another touch of the Spanish culture. On Christmas Eve, tradition continues with the Farolito Walk on Canyon Road, an event to light the hearts and souls of the many who take part.


To the past and present people of Santa Fe, the outdoors also holds special meaning. Even in the heart of the city, you can hear nature calling. From skiing the infamous New Mexican mountains to hiking through snow-draped woods, it is easy to experience the glorious solitude of winter. For a fairytale twist, head to the Valles Caldera National Preserve for a gentle horse-drawn wagon or sleigh ride. Breathe in the crisp air and observe the peaceful wildlife while traveling slowly through the beautiful landscape.
