Voted by locals as Taos News’ 2013 “best annual event in Taos County,” Fiestas de Taos revives a centuries-old celebration of Taos’s culture, history and traditions from July 19–21, 2013 on the Taos Plaza.
Known originally as Fiesta de Santa Ana y Santiago, Fiestas de Taos is a community celebration honoring the two Catholic patron saints of Taos — St. Anne (Santa Ana) and St. Yago (Santiago), celebrated in Taos since the 1600s.
One of the biggest annual summer events in Taos, Fiestas de Taos feature three full days of live music, dance, parades and special presentations along with food and crafts and vendors and activities for children.
“Fiestas de Taos typically sees more than 1,000 attendees annually, and the number increases every year,” said Taos Mayor Darren Cordova, whose band Darren Cordova y Calor, will be performing. “The Fiestas are a way of not only preserving our rich heritage that has evolved over the centuries, but passing these traditions on to the next generations while sharing them with visitors.”
The Fiestas begin at noon on July 19 with music by Dick Cordova followed by a performance by the Mystic Dance team at 1:30 p.m., and musical performances by The UZ Band, Niños Bailadores, and Catalina Rio Fernandez and Flamenco Nuevo Mexico, among others.
