Whether you are trying to get here or get around here, Santa Fe has been at the center of the Southwest for hundreds of years. It was the end of the Santa Fe Trail and a scenic stop along Route 66. The city itself is not designed on a modern grid system with avenues and boulevards, but rather charts its course from a legacy of winding streets dating back to early trails from generations of original people and the subsequent settlers. This charm makes it a walkable city, but it offers the convenience of Uber and Lyft, as well.
You can get to Santa Fe by car, train, or by air, with airports in Santa Fe and Albuquerque. The wide open desert of the Southwest is alluring if you are heading from Texas or California. Originally on Route 66, Santa Fe is a historic destination and the journey is one of enchantment.
The Festival takes place over several days at many of Santa Fe’s Independent Theatres. The Jean Cocteau Cinema is a single-screen art-house cinema owned by George R.R. Martin. The Center for Contemporary Arts is a vibrant art space and cinematheque and the Violet Crown is the centerpiece of the Railyard District.
