Thank you for your interest in the Burning of Zozobra, a unique cultural event staged annually by the Kiwanis Club of Santa Fe, New Mexico on Labor Day Friday as an exciting and fiery finale to the last days of summer.  Since 1964, the Kiwanis has held the exclusive copyright and trademarks to the tradition, which is the Club’s major fundraiser, held as a community service event to benefit children via grants made from the event’s net proceeds.

Below are links to videos and photo folders that you are free to use. We have permission to use all of these photos; for the numbered years, we have releases from every photographer and their credit is already on the image. For images where a photographer is not named please use the following: Photo Credit: “Kiwanis Club of Santa Fe'”

Thank you again and for questions, please reach out to Event Chair Ray Sandoval at [email protected]
