San Juan Feast Day

June 24th San Juan Feast Day includes a sunrise mass and traditional corn dances.  Feast days were introduced by the Spanish colonization and represent the celebration of the Patron Saints of the Catholic religion. 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 appropriate behavior. Thank you for visiting Taos Pueblo during these special events.No cameras or recording devices.
