The 60th Annual Santa Fe Spanish Market
For our guests who fall in love with the touches of Spanish art placed throughout The Hacienda Nicholas B&B Inn, this weekend is the perfect time to start your own collection of this beautiful art. Plan to check out this summer's highly-acclaimed Spanish Market, held at the nearby Santa Fe Plaza on July 30 and 31. Spanish Market began way back in 1926, and is now the largest and most spectacular of any such market in the country. You will see traditional Spanish Colonial art and contemporary Hispanic Arts, including santos, boltos, straw applique work and more. With over 200 vendors from New Mexico showing their work, plus music, dance, food and demonstrations, the festival is a great opportunity to experience past and present New Mexico Culture.
Many of you may also be interested in the special mass to be celebrated at the St. Francis Basilica on Sunday at 8am. There you will see the blessing of the art and the artists of the Spanish Market. This mass will be followed by a procession around the Plaza, led by a Mariachi band. A very festive beginning to the day.
