Santa Fe’s Best Live Music Venue?

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 or by clicking HERE. The “Best Live Music Venue” category is found under the “Arts and Entertainment” section.

Voting ends on Thursday, May 31st.


12 Feb


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!
