Zozofest 2014




Event Description

Are you looking for something fun, free and family friendly to do this weekend? ZozoFest, presented by the Kiwanis Club of Santa Fe takes place this Saturday, August 23 at the Santa Fe Railyard alongside the Zozobra Art Show at Sanbusco Center. Inside Sanbusco Center you will get a sneak peek at this year's 1920's inspired Zozobra as he is resting before his big day and you will be able to stuff your glooms and worries into Zozobra so they will be destroyed by fire at the annual 'Burning of Will Shuster's Zozobra' next Friday, August 29th.

After visiting with Mr. Z you are invited to stroll the Railyard and listen to free live music and at 6:00 PM make sure you are at the Water Tower to watch the unveiling of this year's official ZOZOBRA poster "Zo, What's New?" a 1920's inspired image which perfectly captures the spirit of the 1920's complete with a 'flappers girl' fire dancer. After the poster unveiling you are invited to join Santa Fe's Fiesta Council as they lead a parade back to Mr. Z's home where you are invited to meet artist Westin McDowell and have him sign your limited edition Zozobra 2014 poster.

You and your family are invited to dance under the stars to Nuevo Latino musical styling's of the popular New Mexico based artists Manzanares as they perform at the Railyard Watertower also enjoy Todd and the Fox as they create banjo-driven, award-winning, venue-shaking, roots-rock and electronic tunes. Santa Fe's own Sol Fire, a rock group who are known for their unique sound that merges rock with pop, r&b and latin influences. Sol Fire is led by guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Amado Abeyta and his brother guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Buddy Abeyta. The concept of brothers collaborating in a rock band is far from new and hardly overlooked in the music industry. Oasis, Van Halen, The Everly Brothers and The Beach Boys are a small example of how a fraternal connection can produce success in music. The Abeyta brothers of Sol Fire are no exception. Other acts performing at the WaterTower are Theives and Gypsys, Autumn Faulkner, Miriam Kass, Space Hero and Max Manzanares. An incredible amount of free music begins at 4:00 PM.

The Rail Runner's Santa Fe Depot stop is just a few feet from all of these free weekend Zozobra activities.

All this music. All this art. All free. Presented by The Kiwanis Club of Santa Fe.
