“The Stewards at Scottish Rite were so easy and helpful to work with.  All the parents commented on what a beautiful venue it was for Desert Academy’s graduation, and many pictures were taken in your beautiful courtyard. Thank you so much for everything!”

-Barbara Doddek, Development & Events Coordinator at Desert Academy (May 2018)


“Our experience with the Scottish Rite could not have been better! The Scottish Rite Stewards couldn’t have been more helpful. Everything went so smoothly that once the event started, we were able to completely enjoy the experience with our family and friends. The Grand Ballroom was perfect for our needs and was the shining jewel of the event (next to the bride and groom, of course!) The Santa Fe Scottish Rite comes with my highest recommendations!”

-Phil Shirey, father-of-the-bride and host of Rio and Aladien’s Reception (Feb 2018)


“We loved every aspect of Scottish Rite for our wedding. Beginning with the gorgeous theater, grand piano and set choices for our ceremony, and ending with the spacious reception hall with Tiffany-style fixtures! You would be hard pressed to find a more classy, glamorous and special site for a Santa Fe wedding.”
-Rena and Daniel Simpson

“The Santa Fe Scottish Rite Temple was an excellent venue for Earth USA 2017 (the Ninth International Conference on Architecture and Construction with Earthen Materials). Our guests were highly impressed by the Alhambra Theater and the Temple’s professional and very helpful staff. We are already looking forward to holding our next event here in 2019! Thank you for making our event such a success!”

Being able to perform Shakespeare at the Scottish Rite Temple has been an incredible experience for the young people at Upstart Crows of Santa Fe. To do these plays in a space that is as grand and impressive as the language they’re speaking is an unforgettable experience for them. For the audiences coming to see them, the setting enhances the dignity of the productions and gives everyone there a feeling of something very special happening. As one of the young actors exclaimed, “This place is absolutely amazing!”

Location Manager J. J. Hook: “A wonderful location with a lot to offer.  Great spaces and helpful and friendly staff.  Parking space and industrial kitchen a plus”

Assistant Location Manager Shani Orona: “We had a great time and used most of the building.  High ceilings and open spaces supported our set needs.  Wonderful feeling for all.  We really enjoyed our time in the Scottish Rite Center in Santa Fe!”


NM DeMolay Association
As a Masonic sponsored youth group, we have enjoyed using the Scottish Rite Center for many years.  Staying overnight, and having our meetings and ceremonies in such a historic and inspirational location, provides fine memories for our members.  Many go on to become Masons and join the Scottish Rite.
