Annual Canyon Road Farolito Walk
One of Santa Fe’s most beloved holiday traditions, the Canyon Road Farolito Walk, lights up the hearts and souls of thousands who stroll the iconic road on Christmas Eve. Known for world class galleries, Canyon Road transforms itself into a work of art during this annual celebration unique to Santa Fe.
Thousands of farolitos cast a glow on the gardens, courtyards and adobe walls of the century-old buildings lining the road. Farolitos are little lights made out of paper bags, sand, and tea candles. In Spanish, the word farolito translates as “little lantern” and it is the preferred term in Santa Fe for the decorations that are referred to as luminarias elsewhere.
If you go, make sure to bundle up with warm weather gear.
