Visiting Santa Fe

Santa Fe, the oldest state capital in the nation and its second-largest art market, is a vibrant city that consistently ranks as one of the best places to live in the United States. An amalgam of the three cultures present and celebrated in New Mexico—Native American, Hispanic, and Anglo—the city is a magnet for those engaged in creative arts, for intellectuals, and for lovers of outdoor recreation.

July offers such events as Spanish Market, the Eight Northern Indian Pueblos Arts and Crafts show, the International Folk Art Market, the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, and the world-renowned Santa Fe Opera. Additionally, Santa Fe’s best outdoor music happens right on campus Wednesday nights when the concert series Music on the Hill presents live jazz and world music in a family-friendly, relaxed atmosphere with gorgeous sunset views.

St. John’s is only three miles from Santa Fe’s historic downtown plaza and within walking distance of four major museums and the famous Canyon Road art galleries.
