Visiting Santa Fe

Santa Fe Events Calendar

railyard LOGO The Railyard has long been a focal point for transportation in Santa Fe. In the late 19th and early 20th century, the site was a key interchange point between three railroads. More recent times brought the convergence of several of the City’s most important roadways, including Cerrillos Road, St. Francis Drive, Guadalupe Street and Paseo de Peralta.

Currently, the Santa Fe Railyard is a hub of entertainment, shopping, food and events. Meet up with friends to cruise the Farmers Market or watch a film on the lawn during the Railyard's summer movie nights.

Shopping - Browse local handmade goods and gifts at the local artisan shops or any of the other boutiques within the Railyard such as Bon Marche, REI, Casa Nova, Circle Antiques and more.

Food - Grab something to go or sit down and have a cold brew, the food choices are many. Second Street Brewery calls the Railyard home and offers an award winning Green Chile Cheeseburger made with local chile from the nearby farmers market.

Violet Crown - Enjoy a blockbuster or the latest independent movie in this state-of-art theater with reclining seats, tray tables for the theater's gourmet food and online reserved seating.

Farmers Market - It began in the early sixties with a handful of local farmers and is now rated the #6 best farmers market in the country by Over 150 vendors are represented at the market and feature hundreds of agricultural products. For more information and hours click here.

Railyard Park - Take a stroll or enjoy a picnic in the Railyard Park, the 13-acre award-winning green space in the heart of the Railyard. With 28 individual gardens, rotating public art, a children's play area and free events year-round, the Railyard Park is the perfect place to immerse yourself in native plantings, the local neighborhood and the history of the Santa Fe Railroad.

Contemporary Art - The Santa Fe Railyard is surrounded by high end contemporary art galleries. From July through September, take a free tour of the Railyard Arts District which was voted one of the best art districts in the country by USA Today readers. Friday night art walks are also a local favorite and happen the last Friday of every month throughout the year. For a complete list of galleries and locations click here.

Baca District - The Baca area marks the southern end of the Railyard and once served as a coal and fuel storage yard for the Denver & Rio Grande and New Mexico Central railways, connected to the North Railyard site by a still visible old rail alignment across the area currently occupied by School of the Deaf. The ten acres of the original site had no paved through streets, but haul trucks exited by surrounding local roads through the adjacent Baca neighborhood. The completed Acequia Trail Easement now connects the Baca area to the North Railyard for hikers and cyclists and provides a major link in the extensive trail system throughout the city of Santa Fe and beyond.

Rails & Trails - The Railyard has long been a focal point for transportation in Santa Fe. In the late 19th and early 20th century, the site was a key interchange point between three railroads. Now, the New Mexico Rail Runner offers commuter service 7 days a week between the Railyard in Santa Fe, Albuquerque and Belen. For complete train schedules click here.
