Event Details: Santa Fe Winter Festival 2011

The first annual Santa Fe Winter Fiesta takes place February 18 - 27, 2011 throughout Santa Fe's historic streets and in the nearby Rocky Mountains. 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, the region's savory and diverse cuisine, the city's performing arts, and Santa Fe's endless fine arts. See here for details. Ticket information here.

The festival will conclude with the 14th Annual ARTfeast, one of Santa Fe's most popular annual events. ARTfeast is the annual fundraising event for ARTsmart, which was founded in 1993 to address the lack of funding for art programs and supplies in Santa Fe public schools. In a city built on and sustained by the arts, ARTsmart is committed to funding the creative thinkers of tomorrow.  ARTsmart has distributed just under $835,000 through 2010 to ARTsmart projects, public school programs, art related organizations and endowment funds.

Be sure to get an early start on the Fiesta and join us February 11, from 5 - 7 PM, for the opening reception for Richard C. Miller: A Retrospective at Monroe Gallery.
