Taos Pride is three days of gathering, sharing, and being visible in our community. We want to invite you to share in the events and become a part of our quirky and open family. We do things a little differently in Taos. Be ready for an experience that may take you to new places.
Thursday and Friday start things off with social gatherings and parties. Saturday morning we get everyone together for a parade through town. The main event happens Saturday with Pride in the Park. It is an afternoon of music, dance, performance and relaxing in the park with friends. Saturday night culminates in a blow-out drag performance near the plaza.
The goal of Taos Pride is to create a place for people to be themselves. We welcome people and organizations from any community that share these sorts of values. If you want to participate, organize or present at our events, please contact us with the form at the bottom of the page.
THINGS TO DO
The Reasons You’ll Love It
Taos has a ton of great restaurants. If you are on the plaza, check out Hero for super tasty sandwiches.
A whole afternoon of bands, burlesque, variety acts, and drag performances for the boys and the girls in the audience.
A range of gifts, local crafts, affordable art and various confections are available for your wandering eye.
The sunny day and dancing usually make everyone a bit thirsty and peckish. There will always be a bite ready from the food vendors. Grab a drink at the beer garden.
This will be the third year we parade through town. It is a small town affair. Look for a stream of old trucks, hot cars and a ton of colorful people walking the parade route from the County Courthouse to Kit Carson Park. If you want to participate, show up in the courthouse parking lot on Saturday and pitch in with the decoration. If you would rather watch, line the side of the street and cheer just before noon.
Taos Pueblo is a vibrant example of traditional native values and authentically living in harmony with the land. If you are visiting, you shouldn’t pass up an opportunity to walk within this remarkable complex of homes, shops and fields.
UNESCO World Heritage Site
Oldest continuously inhabited structure in the United States
Taos Pride was launched 7 years ago by Robert Quintana because he wanted to throw Taos a great big and fabulous party. It is his vision and joy that lives on through the organization and annual events.
We strive to maintain the goals creating an open space for celebration, respect, sharing, play and remembrance. We want to invite you to join us.
