10 Days of Winter Fun in Santa Fe

The first annual Santa Fe Winter Fiesta takes place throughout Santa Fe's historic streets and in the nearby Rocky Mountains from February 18 to 27, 2011. Each day will be a celebration of the season with daily special events focusing on Santa Fe's bountiful outdoor opportunities, Native American and Spanish cultures, diverse cuisine, the city's performing arts, and Santa Fe's endless visual arts. At night the city will be alive with parties throughout town.

Winter Fiesta events include guided cross-country skiing excursions into the Santa Fe National Forest and Trails to Treats snowshoe scavenger hunts using GPS, a guided Native American cultural tour to the ancient Puye Cliff Dwellings, and special, behind the scenes tours of some of the city's outstanding museums.

Value-priced alpine skiing at Ski Santa Fe, specially priced cooking classes and cuisine tours from Santa Fe School of Cooking, and a gallery walk along Canyon Road are all planned for the week. In addition, there will be musical events each evening during fiesta.

The 10 day festival ends with ARTfeast, a weekend of fine arts, fine food, fine homes, and fine fashion benefiting art education in the public schools. The weekend starts off with a Fashion Show & Auction followed by a Gentlemen's Lunch on Friday. The day ends with one of the city's favorite events, the Edible Art tour on Friday evening; an art and food tour of 30 Santa Fe galleries, each featuring food from one of the city's finest restaurants.

On both Saturday and Sunday tours of eight outstanding Santa Fe homes filled with art will be held. Finally, an Artists' Champagne Brunch & Auction will take place on Sunday.
