NM Pueblo Ceremonial Event and Dance Calendar - Summer 2016

“Feast Days” at each of the Pueblos are named after the Pueblos’ patron saint. The Pueblos open up their respective Feast Days to the public where visitors can view the dances and songs offered on those days. Feast Days bring tribal members together to renew their culture, language and native religion. On those days, families prepare food for the many invited visitors coming through their homes, and participate in the activities taking place on their Feast Day.

We ask that all visitors please follow the established etiquette guidelines while visiting the pueblos. Please click here to view the etiquette guidelines.
