A Chat with the 2022 Taos Fiestas Royal Court

Join this conversation with  this year's incoming Royal Court for the 2022 Fiestas de Taos!  Reina Sonya Gallegos and Princesas Mariah Cebada, Kyra Trujillo and Mariaelena Lucero.
They will make an appearance at the Plaza tonight during Taos Plaza Live!

The annual Fiesta celebrations, which date back to the early 1600s, are held in commemoration of Santiago and Santa Ana, who, in the Catholic tradition, are the patron saints of Taos. It involves  the gathering of generations to enjoy delicious cuisine, traditional music, and fellowship while honouring the cultural uniqueness of Taos, New Mexico. Tune in!
