The Burning of Zozobra

August 30, 2024

The burning of Zozobra (Spanish for “the gloomy one”) is the 1924 inspiration of artist Will Shuster, one of Santa Fe’s famed Cinco Pintores. It is presented annually by the Kiwanis Club of Santa Fe on the Friday of Labor Day weekend.

Let go of your worries by putting them inside Santa Fe’s historic troublemaker! Upload a document or a photo, choose where your gloom goes inside Zozobra, or give the unique gift of gloom-riddance to someone else.


Stay the Night!

We have different condo sizes to accommodate your group at Fort Marcy! Stay safe and avoid the traffic by spending the night (or two!) with us.
