We were honored to be voted Santa Fe’s “Best Community Event” by reader’s of The Santa Fe Reporter for the past five years, and were looking forward to our sixth consecutive win in 2018. To our dismay, the “Best Community Event” category was eliminated from this year’s poll so it looks like our winning streak will end at five.
But not all is lost! Reader’s of The Reporter have nominated the Plaza Bandstand as one of Santa Fe’s “Best Live Music Venues” for 2018. We agree!
If you think the Plaza Bandstand is a special venue, please take a moment to vote accordingly in The Reporter’s Best of Santa Fe readers poll. You’ll find this year’s ballot at https://www.sfreporter.com/bosf/#// or by clicking HERE. The “Best Live Music Venue” category is found under the “Arts and Entertainment” section.
Voting ends on Thursday, May 31st.
We’re pleased to report that this year’s advertising and sponsorship season was a great success – we are completely SOLD OUT of advertising space and sponsorship opportunities.
Thanks to all our local supporters for getting the 2018 Santa Fe Bandstand season off to such a great start!
After winning first place as “Best Community Event” for the past five years, the editors of the Santa Fe Reporter have decided to retire the category. We were hoping to claim our sixth consecutive title this year, but alas, it’s not to be.
Thanks for your continued support. We still aim to be Santa Fe’s favorite community event – award or no award!
We often hear comments like “We love the Bandstand. How can we do to show our support?” The answer is easy: advertise your business or service in the annual Santa Fe Bandstand Guide (circulation: 20,000 copies.) Or better yet, think about sponsoring a night of music on the Plaza or SWAN Park.
For more information on how you can get involved supporting Santa Fe’s Favorite Community Event, give us a call at 505-986-6054.
The 2018 application season closed on December 31, 2017. We are no longer accepting submissions.
Applications for the 2019 season will be available through our website beginning October 1, 2018. Please check back at that time if you’re interested in playing next year’s Bandstand.
