As if you needed another reason to fall in love with Santa Fe, N.M. - beyond its signature, beautiful red clay and adobe architecture and the golden-hued mountains and wilderness that surround New Mexico’s capital – along comes the Second Annual Santa Fe Winter Fiesta.

Have you ever read about a festival or fiesta or some similar event that promised to provide “something for everyone” only to be let down when you see the schedule and can’t find anything that looks like fun to you? Well, if you like to eat and drink (and really, who doesn’t?), or if you are a fan of music or comedy (or both), or if you love to ski, dance or stroll through farmers’ markets, you will not be let down by the cornucopia of entertainment and activities offered at the Santa Fe Winter Fiesta.

Spanning 10 consecutive days, beginning on Friday, January 27 and running through Sunday, February 5, the Santa Fe Winter Fiesta will feature a scavenger hunt amid the pine trees of Santa Fe’s hills and mountains, a big Super Bowl blowout bash, more than 20 local breweries, and music from seven incredible bands.

Those of you interested in hitting the slopes during these 10 days can take advantage of a pretty sweet deal being offered by Ski Santa Fe. Get yourself a Santa Fe Winter Fiesta Adventure Pass for only $10 and the good people at Ski Santa Fe will give you $10 off the price of lift tickets throughout the Santa Fe Winter Fiesta.

But wait, there’s more! If you purchase one of those Santa Fe Winter Fiesta Adventure Passes, you will also receive some incredible discounts on ALL Winter Fiesta events.

All of the featured shows and activities will be held at the Santa Fe Farmers Market Pavilion, which will also play host to the Santa Fe Farmers’ Market (on Sunday, Jan. 29 and Saturday, Feb. 4) and the Railyard Artisans Market (also on Sunday, Jan. 29 and Sunday, Feb. 5).
