This summer, Santa Fe is celebrating Pride with a side of Western swagger. Not only will the City Different throw its usual epic Pride parade and party on the historic Santa Fe Plaza on June 28, but it will also welcome the New Mexico Gay Rodeo Association’s Zia Regional Rodeo the same weekend. There’s no better time to visit Santa Fe, and visitors can grab a front row seat for it all with La Fonda on the Plaza’s “Ride with Pride” hotel package.
With the special limited time offer valid all of Pride Week (June 24-30), guests can toast one of Santa Fe’s legendary sunsets on La Fonda’s rooftop with complimentary welcome cocktails, luxuriate in one of the hotel’s artfully decorated guestrooms, and enjoy complimentary breakfast (blue corn piñon pancakes, anyone?) next to the soothing fountain in La Plazuela restaurant. On Pride Day (Saturday, June 29th), they will be ideally positioned to watch or march in the Parade which passes right by the hotel’s front door. Guests will receive a special discount to Zia Regional Rodeo performances on Saturday after the Parade or on Sunday. The event attracts the top 20 cowboys and cowgirls in each of 13 different rodeo events and serves as a qualifier for the World Gay Rodeo Finals in Scottsdale, AZ in October 2019.
Guests arriving in town earlier can even use discount vouchers provided in the package to learn the fine art of chute dogging, flag racing and more at the New Mexico Gay Rodeo Association’s Rodeo School on Friday, June 28th. All rodeo events are animal-friendly and take place under safe guidance at the Rodeo de Santa Fe Rodeo Grounds at 3237 Rodeo Road in Santa Fe.
Package prices begin at $342 per room per night and include:
