The 19th Annual Santa Fe Spring Festival

Welcome to the 19th Annual Santa Fe Spring Festival!

Join us as we kick off the 2024 season at El Rancho de Las Golondrinas and celebrate the rich cultural heritage of New Mexico. From sheep shearing to horno bread baking, activities and demonstrations abound, showcasing age-old traditions passed down through generations.

Children can unleash their creativity with crafts tailored just for them, while adults can peruse the arts & crafts vendors, offering unique handmade treasures. And don't forget to indulge in the flavors of New Mexico with refreshing hard cider from New Mexico Hard Cider and wine from Sheehan Winery.

Come experience the magic of the Southwest at the Santa Fe Spring Festival, where tradition meets excitement in every corner!
