Our festival is almost all outdoors ... so we're still on track for a great TradFest!

In response to COVID-19 precautions, we have moved our main stage out to the Field Stage tent.

We'll have lots of chairs under the canopy, but feel free to bring your own chairs and blankets!

And bring your masks for use indoors. 

Dear Festival Attendees -

We are working to ensure that the 2021 Santa Fe TradFest will provide a safe environment for all festival participants. To that end, we have moved the main stage concert performances to an outdoor setting, under a large, open-sided tent. 

Workshops will take place under a smaller open tent and in the event center (the Paige Stage), with doors and windows open for maximum ventilation.


The NM Governor has issued a requirement effective Friday, August 20 that face masks must be worn when indoors at public venues. People attending Santa Fe Tradfest are asked to observe this requirement and to observe current CDC and New Mexico Department of Health requirements and recommendations to minimize the risk of Covid infections and transmissions.

TradFest  Flea Market

Support the Santa Fe TradFest by donating music-related items to our Flea Market, located in the Merchandise Tent!

A wide range of items that are popular: CDs (maybe you’ve burned all of them to your computer), LPs (favorites of your dear departed Grandpa that don’t fit your taste), musical instruments (your first plywood mandolin!), the student guitar whose fingerboard is too skinny for anyone in the household), sheet music and music theory books (yes, there are people who can read that stuff), biographies of artists, histories of musical styles. In short, anything that is connected to music.

Of particular interest would be musical instruments in need of setup or repair. There are a lot of beginner luthiers who would love to have a low value instrument to practice on.  

Tax receipts are available for all donations (that Gibson harp guitar) and every donation will receive our thanks and help make TradFest even better!  Items can be dropped off at the Merchandise Tent when you arrive at the festival.  Thanks for participating!

In order to comply with State of New Mexico Department of Health guidelines, festival plans are subject to change.  Please check our website for updates.
