Santa Fe Bandstand: 2003-2021

All Things Must Pass…  The City of Santa Fe has selected a new vendor to produce the annual summer music series on the Plaza. As such, Outside In Productions will now step aside as the producer of Santa Fe Bandstand.

We wish the new producers every success in their new endeavor.

Most importantly, THANK YOU to all the musicians, dancers, sponsors and Bandstand fans for your steady and passionate support over the past 18 years. You gave our work meaning and we are forever grateful.

See you on the dance floor…

Longtime Santa Fe Bandstand photographer Noreen O’Brien has assembled an extraordinary collection of more than 800 photographs from the 2018 and 2019 Bandstand seasons. This superbly curated 94-page full-color hardcover book documents the artists and fans that make Santa Fe Bandstand the beloved community event that it is.

This thoughtful compilation will take you back to the Plaza on a cool summer night.  The musicians, the dancers, the audience, the sun, the rain – it’s all documented in Noreen’s brilliant photographic style.  If you love Santa Fe Bandstand, you’ll love this amazing book!

With great sadness and profound disappointment, the board of Outside In Productions has announced the cancellation of the 2020 Santa Fe Bandstand season.

We held out as long as we could, hoping there might be some way to make it work. But having read the Governor’s plan to re-opening plan, it became apparent that limiting Plaza crowds to 100 people with social distancing protocols would be impossible to manage and enforce. Unable to guarantee the health and safety of our audience, musicians and sponsors, we had no choice but to stand down.

We look forward to brighter days, where the Santa Fe community can once again gather on a warm summer night to dance our cares away.

Thanks to everyone for your love and support.

Needless to say, we’re living in challenging times, and be honest, we’re not sure if the 2020 Bandstand season will happen.

Even if public gatherings are permitted by our scheduled opening date on June 30th, we’re currently loosing a significant number of advertisers and sponsors. Without their financial support, there’s no way to cover the cost of our annual series.

In the near term, our hope is the curve will soon flatten and our sponsors and advertisers will once again be in a position to provide support.

Longer term, we look forward to gathering the Bandstand family on the Plaza on a warm summer night, to dance, sing and un-distance ourselves from all those we’ve been cut off from.

We’ll post updates as soon as our path forward clarifies.

Stay tuned. Stay positive. Stay safe.
