Luminarias First Friday

Luminarias First Friday

The First Friday Art Walk and Luminarias Festival unite on Friday, December 7 for a free evening in Denver's Art District on Santa Fe.

As always, hundreds of artists will be displaying work in studios and galleries along Santa Fe Drive with late-night hours in addition to Luminarias festivities.

Enjoy a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus, who will be roaming the galleries along the Luminarias path.

Luminarias—or Farolitos—are a tradition of the southwest. Candles are carefully placed in sand inside of a bag, providing a warm glow that will take over Santa Fe Drive in Denver for one night only. 

Farolito means “little lantern” in Spanish, and luminary, or luminaria, means “festival light.” The term luminaria was used in reference to a vigil bonfire, though it’s primarily northern New Mexicans who have kept this distinction. 

This event is brought to you by a collaboration between Denver's Art District on Santa Fe and the Santa Fe Drive Business Improvement District. Whether you call it a farolito or a luminaria, art and culture unite on December 7 for Luminarias First Friday. 

For a list of events, visit: denversartdistrict.org/events
For full info on First Friday, visit: denversartdistrict.org/first-friday

The heart of the art walk is between 7th and 10th Avenues on Santa Fe Drive, with more galleries scattered nearby. To get here, take the Light Rail to 10th and Osage or opt for a ride share, as parking is difficult.

During Denver Arts Week 2018, the Art District on Santa Fe (ADSF)—a nonprofit arts organization and Certified Creative District in Denver—is proud to introduce a Día de los Muertos celebration coinciding with the First Friday Art Walk on Friday, November 2, 2018.

The event is a collaboration between ADSF, Consulate General de Mexico in Denver, Museo de las Americas, Su Teatro, Colorado Ballet, CHAC Gallery, the Office of Councilman Paul D. López, Univision Colorado, and FOX31 with news partner Colorado’s Own Channel 2.

To commemorate, on Thursday, November 1, festivities kick off with a free screening of the film “Coco” hosted at Su Teatro Cultural & Performing Arts Center at 6:30 p.m.

On Friday, November 2, in addition to traditional First Friday Art Walk activities—with late-night access to hundreds of artists and exhibits among the galleries on Santa Fe Drive—there will also be Catrina face painting stations and community altars positioned throughout the district between CHAC Gallery and the Colorado Ballet. There will also be special performances at a variety of the large cultural institutions along the corridor.

The public is also invited to take part in a community procession honoring loved ones on Friday, November 2. The procession will begin at the corner of 9th and Galapago at 7 p.m. The walking route will continue north to 11th Avenue, head west to Santa Fe Drive, then south on Santa Fe Drive, ending at Museo de las Americas. The procession will end at the back patio of Museo de las Americas, where there will be a communal altar. Also at Museo, a Catrina costume contest will be held along with a closing celebration.
