Viva Santa Fe!

The cry of "Viva la Fiesta" has been reverberating through the streets of Old Santa Fe every fall for almost 300 years. The exclamation generates a curious blend of being thankful, merry-making and pride in the hearts of Santa Fe residents who celebrate Fiesta each year to commemorate Don Diego De Vargas' peaceful reoccupation of the City of Holy Faith in 1692.
Viva la Fiesta! Viva Santa Fe!
