Summer Guide

Summer Guide: Introduction

The heat is on—and we’ve got you covered

Ah, summer in Santa Fe. Are there more beautiful words for the people who live here? Not likely, because this is a town that knows how to do summertime right. OK, we do winter pretty well, too, but you can practically hear the energy humming in the streets with anticipation—it’s warmer, there’s more to do and the evenings are drop-dead gorgeous. But with the entire city coming alive with gusto, how do we even begin to make the most out of the next three months? A little planning goes a long way, and we’re here to help. Within our 2024 Summer Guide, find plenty of suggestions for catching films, concerts and other events. Or maybe it’s time to pack up the car for a day trip out of town. You’ll meet people who ride bikes or skate by night, find Santa Fe Opera tailgating prompts and discover a gallery show or two (or three) worth your time. There’s more where that came from, too. Read on.
