The first annual Santa Fe Winter Fiesta takes place February 18 - 27, 2011 throughout Santa Fe's historic streets. Each day will be a celebration of the season with daily special events focusing on Santa Fe's bountiful outdoor opportunities, Native American and Spanish cultures, the region's savory and diverse cuisine, the city's performing arts, and Santa Fe's endless fine arts. On Monday, February 21, 2011 from 12noon – 4pm Santa Fe Chefs competed in an Ice Carving Competition on the Santa Fe Plaza. Awards were given and money raised by the event will be given to charity.
