Fiestas de Taos

Children’s Parade Information

The Taos Fiesta Council, Inc. invites you to participate in our annual Taos Fiesta Children’s Parade. This year’s parade will be held on Saturday, July 20, 2019, beginning promptly at 10:00 AM from Enos Garcia Elementary School. Registration will take place at Enos Garcia Elementary School.

Our annual Fiesta celebrations, which date back to the early 1600’s, are in commemoration of Santiago and Santa Ana, who in the Catholic tradition are the patron saints of Taos. The theme for 2019 is: Once a Taoseño, Always a Taoseño: Las Fiestas de Taos; Una Vez un Taoseño, Siempre un Taoseño: Las Fiestas de Taos. We appreciate the participation and support of fellow Taoseños and neighbors from surrounding communities in these efforts to instill in our youth the importance of both community and heritage.

We sincerely thank you for your consideration and look forward to your participation and patronage of the Fiestas de Taos; ¡Que Vivan Las Fiestas!

Cariñosamente, Taos Fiesta Council, Inc.
