Las Fiestas de Santiago y Santa Ana are traditionally celebrated in July in Taos, New Mexico. A fiesta is the annual celebration of a community's patron saints feast day. Parades and entertainment in the plaza was historically a part of the celebration. 

In the 1930s the newly incorporated Town of Taos started the Fiestas for Sanitago (St James) and Santa Ana (St. Anne). Still celebrated today, Las Fiestas de Santiago y Santa Ana continue to preserve and celebrate the cultures that have lived together in this valley for four centuries.
