The 2021 Festival on the Santa Fe Plaza has been CANCELED due to the Covid19/coronavirus outbreak and the continuation of public health restrictions in New Mexico.
We hope to welcome artists and visitors back to the Plaza in 2022! We will keep this page updated as we receive new information about the 2022 Festival.
Things You May Be Wondering
Which booth is the best?
There is NO BAD booth location at our show! You will have great traffic whether you are on the perimeter of the Plaza (on the street or walkway) or on the inside of the Plaza (on the grass or around the monument). The Grand Stand is on the north side of the Plaza. Booths on the walkway are generally shady, but please be aware that bugs live in trees - your tent may end up a little dirtier on the top if you are under the trees. If you need electricity at your booth, please select a booth that is on the walkway or on the grass.
How do I apply for a New Mexico Tax ID Number?
Each person who participates in our show MUST have a New Mexico Tax ID# (also referred to as a NM CRS#). The City of Santa Fe requires vendors to include this number on the Special Event License Application in order to be licensed to sell in our show. Luckily, it's very easy to apply for this number online! Just head over to this site and you'll be registered with the state in no time: New Mexico Taxation and Revenue
Does the application fee count toward the booth fee?
The booth fee is SEPARATE from the application fee for 2020. You must submit the $50 application fee with your application in order to be considered for the show. If you would like to submit the booth fee at the same time as your show application and application fee, please send two checks - one for the $50 app fee and one for the booth fee. The application fee is non-refundable, and it will be processed immediately regardless of admittance to the festival. If you are accepted, we will process your booth fee or inform you by email of the balance of your booth fee.
Where is a great place to stay?
There are so many great hotels, motels, and even camp sites close to the Plaza area and Santa Fe in general. Santa Fe is a relatively small town, so don't be afraid to stay somewhere that isn't right by the Plaza. Here is a great website to help you pick the right place: Santa Fe Accommodations
Where should I park?
Unfortunately, we do not have a designated lot for vendor parking. We STRONGLY recommend unhitching large trailers after unloading (instead of trying to park them in the Plaza area). The good news is that parking on Sunday is always free! This site has information about public parking lots: City of Santa Fe Parking Lots and Garages
*Railyard parking options are about a 10-15 minute brisk walk from the Plaza.
Can I bring my pet with me to the show?
We LOVE animals! Unfortunately, animals WILL NOT be allowed in the festival area during the event. If you have an ADA service animal, your animal can (of course) remain with you. Animal Control will be patrolling the Plaza for the entirety of the event to enforce this rule, and they can issue $100 citations for violations.
