WHEN: August 30, 2019
Kick off your Labor Day weekend with an experience like none otherǃ Amid fireworks and the ceremonial dances of ghosts and fire, Zozobra is set ablaze by torches. As Old Man Gloom burns, it is said that with him go the feelings of gloom and doom from the past year. The sound of the groaning Zozobra can be heard throughout the city and for miles around. Created by local Santa Fe artists over 90 years ago and now sponsored by the Santa Fe Kiwanis Club, this event draws thousands of visitors, rain or shine, and is the official kick-off for the Santa Fe Fiestas.
