The Burning of Zozobra is a unique cultural event staged annually by the Kiwanis Club of Santa Fe on the Friday before Labor Day. This must-see event takes place on August 30, 2019— at the beginning of the historic Fiesta de Santa Fe . For those who have never heard of Zozobra and those who wonder why we burn this tall effigy made of muslin and stuffed with bags of shredded paper, we offer you a glimpse to the man, the myth….Zozobra.
No matter how you get to Santa Fe—plane train or automobile—you’ll have no trouble zipping around the historic streets of the City Different.

Santa Fe invites visitors and locals alike to celebrate the unique richness of the city’s extraordinary past and vibrant present in ¡Viva Santa Feǃ—a month-long celebration of the best of The City Different. ¡Viva Santa Feǃ caters to all ages with live music, dancing, art, parades, outdoor activities, and our world-renowned Santa Fe cuisine.
¡Viva Santa Fe! loosely translated means “Long Live Santa Fe” or “Living Santa Fe”. When Santa Fean’s hear shouts of “¡Que Viva!” ringing through the streets, it’s apparent that, the citywide extravaganza dedicated to Santa Fe’s history and culture, has made its return. Here are some hot suggestions to get you in the spirit this September…
“Viva La Fiesta” is the chant one hears over and over during the Santa Fe Fiesta, but I suggest shouting “¡Que Viva Los Vestidos de la Fiesta”! (Long live those who dress up for Fiesta!). Locals who attended annual fiesta celebrations of the past put much thought and detail into their fiesta attire—and there are still some who dress traditionally—but many of today’s fiesta-goers interpret fiesta wear in new and interesting ways. Santa Fe is a blend of many cultures and one can find fiesta inspiration from the Anglo, Hispanic and Native American customs and traditions that transform The City Different into a melting pot of fiesta fashion.
