Since 1712, the City of Santa Fe honor "peaceful reconquest of the capital" by General Don Diego de Vargas in 1692. In 1692, General Don Diego de Vargas made a promise to the Marian statue of Nuestra Senora de la Paz, La Conquistadora, to honor the memory of the Spanish resettlement of the city of Santa Fe. The revered religious statue remains a significant part of the ceremony surrounding the Fiestas.
Celebrations include religious ceremony, art market, food fair, and live music, dancing, and competitions for this year's La Reina and Don De Vargas, that encompass the honoring of this 300+ year-old tradition.
¡Que Viva La Fiesta!
