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.

Although our feast days are open to the public, one must be invited to a home to visit and/or share a feast day meal. Please use common courtesy etiquette and do not walk into a home uninvited. Other common courtesies include; after a dance is over please do not applaud for these are not performances. Our dances are part of a ceremony and it is an honor to see these dances. Please while watching the dances do not question community members as to what’s the significance of the dance, remember you are witnessing a ceremony therefore please exercise self control.

Thank you for visiting Taos Pueblo during these special events.

    I’m very impressed with the website. I currently live in Wyoming, however my family is originally from Ranchos de Taos. We are planning a group trip to visit the Taos Pueblos for the first time in May 2013!

    We will be visiting June 24, Feast of San Juan. I read in one source there is a corn dance that day. Will there be dances open to the public on June 24? Thank you.

    Truely a culture engraved deeply in our nations soul. So many ‘real’ good people and families. It was indeed a proud feeling to visit with friends living on the Pueblo. The Land, Waters, and Spiritual Enlightenings shall be remembered forever.

    I’m so sorry we’re missing the awesome summer pow wow there. We hope to visit for the Santa Ana Feast Day, Friday the 26th. I’m wondering what time the dances wrap up by as we’ll be coming up from Albuquerque that morning.
    thanks
