AMP Concerts – Light Among the Ruins

The ruins of Gisewa Pueblo and San José de los Jemez Mission Church will be decorated with hundreds of traditional farolitos. The evening’s events will include Native American flute music and Native American dancers performing between two bonfires (luminarias).The enormous popularity of the Jemez Historic Site breath-taking and beloved Light Among the Ruins annual holiday event has necessitated changes this year to accommodate large crowds.

“This is a magical, and absolutely captivating event that is much beloved! Word about what a magnificent spectacle this is has spread, so we have had to come up with a new plan to manage the overflow crowds anticipated this year,” said Matthew Barbour, Regional Manager of the Jemez and Coronado Historic Site “In the past, Light Among the Ruins has always been popular, but this year, the overwhelming interest we’ve seen on social media prompted us to stagger the times of the event, and to cover the expense of traffic, staffing and crowd management we will now charge a per person fee.”

In addition to covering the cost of hosting Light Among the Ruins, any additional funds collected beyond expenses will help provide for preservation, future exhibits and programs at the Jemez Historic Site.

Light Among the Ruins will be held Saturday, December 8 from 5 p.m. – 10 p.m. There are nine blocks of tickets with staggered arrival times every half hour. Reservations are being taken online for every half-hour between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. (5 p.m., 5 :30 p.m., 6 p.m., 6:30 p.m., 7 p.m., 7:30 p.m., 8 p.m., 8:30 p.m., 9 p.m.). Although it is in half hour blocks, guests can stay as long as they like! We are simply staggering entrance times to accommodate as many visitors as comfortably possible during this magical event!
