Feast days were introduced by the Spanish colonization and represent the celebration of the Patron Saints of the Catholic religion (see our Event Calendar) Feast Days also coincide with our traditional Pueblo religion which allows the people of our community to practice both the Catholic and Pueblo Religion. A typical Feast Day is a day of eating, visiting with family, friends and enjoying the traditional dances that are allowed to public spectators. Feast days are an integral part of the Pueblo culture and we enjoy sharing these days with our visitors and friends.
Here are a few clothing recommendations when visiting Taos Pueblo. Keep in mind we are somewhat located off the beaten path, comfortable shoes are a must. Whether you choose to wear; sneakers, hiking boots, flats or sandals, the visit is a walking tour and we want you to be comfortable. Taos Pueblo does enjoy all four seasons. A light jacket and dressing in layers is always a good choice, we do live in a high desert climate and the weather can sometimes be unpredictable.
Taos Pueblo is the only living Native American community designated both a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and a National Historic Landmark. The multi-storied adobe buildings have been continuously inhabited for over 1000 years. We welcome you to visit our village when you travel to northern New Mexico. .
