Long Live The CelebrationǃMake your last days of summer unforgettable with Viva Santa Fe, a majestic, month-long celebration of history, culture and local flavor. The festivities kick off with the 90-year-old incendiary custom that is the Burning of Zozobra, where awe-struck revelers send their worries (literally) up in smoke. Next, the legendary Fiesta de Santa Fe gets underway in grand style. More than 300 years after its inception, this year's Fiesta promises to be the grandest and most vibrant ever. Then give your taste buds an adventure at the Green Chile Cheeseburger Smackdown, a citywide tournament to crown the “Reigning Chomp” of fiery cheeseburger alchemy. Join us for several magical weeks of live music, art markets, traditional ceremonies and one-of-a-kind Santa Fe cuisine as we honor our centuries-old heritage during Viva Santa Fe.
