The 20th Annual Santa Fe Fiesta de los Niños

Join us for an immersive adventure through New Mexico’s past and get your hands-on history with traditional demonstrations and activities like tin stamping, rope and tortilla making, play old timey school house games, and make your own mini adobe house. Meet our resident goats, burros and churro sheep, and partake in wool spinning, weaving and dyeing! Food trucks, live entertainment, and local artisans make this event fun for the whole family. Be our guest where history comes to life.
