Knighting of Don Diego de Vargas and Coronation of La Reina de La Fiesta de Santa Fe ™ / Procession
Sun, Jun 5 onetime 3 PM - 6 PM
Location: Cathedral Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi

Each summer the faithful of Santa Fe gather to ensure that Don Diego de Vargas’ promise is kept to honor the oldest Marian statue in the United States, Nuestra Senora de la Paz, La Conquistadora. This beautiful tradition begins with the knighting and coronation mass for the individuals selected to portray the roles of Don Diego de Vargas, his cuadrilla, La Reina de la Fiesta de Santa Fe™, and her royal court.

Immediately after, hundreds of New Mexicans retrace their ancestor’s footsteps and process to Rosario Chapel. Dignitaries, Santa Fe Fiesta Council Members, parishioners, and clergy of the various parishes all process in honor of our lady. La Conquistadora is carried as rose petals are strewn in front of her as she makes her annual pilgrimage to Rosario Chapel. visit our website
