Past FiestasSubmit Your fiesta memories!
2023 events were headquartered at Bank of the Southwest parking lot. Locals and visitors enjoyed great music, tasty food, a sweet parade, and lots of participation from the community. The beer garden was hoppin and kids played on blowup water slides at Healing Waters Plaza.
Ralph Edwards Park was getting a facelift in 2022, so Fiesta moved its center downtown, with music vendors and more at Healing Waters Plaza, Bank of the Southwest parking lot, with throughout town.
Fiesta 2020 was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but not before the theme was picked!
Lords & Ladies descended on Truth or Consequences during Fiesta weekend 2011.
Locals really got into character for this one – James Cagney, Burt Reynolds, Elizabeth Taylor, Oscar, and even Popeye were on hand in 2010, when Fiesta paid tribute to Tinsel Town.
2009’s theme was most timely since T or C was celebrating SIXTY years of Truth or Consequences Fiesta! Floats, costumes and events all paid tribute to the decade that brought us everything from bellbottoms to Civil Rights.
The 2008 Fiesta was all about Reducing, Reusing, and Recycling. The theme resulted in some terrific recycled costumes and floats, a focus on innovators in sustainability, and fundraising through recycling. Fiesta’s planners adopted environmentally-friendly practices that will continue to be utilized for many Fiestas to come!
In 2007, floats and costumes depicted favorite super heroes, historical characters, stars of pop culture, and those not as often in the public eye: family members, teachers, health care professionals, and the many who’ve served our country in the military.
This theme was chosen due to the development of the Spaceport and the excitement generated by the X Prize Cup. The coming of such highly advanced technology and space commercialism to the deserts of New Mexico caused many of us to contemplate how our daily lives would be affected. Therefore it seemed only appropriate that we utilize the 2006 Truth or Consequences Fiesta to creatively celebrate and explore the many possibilities that this new space age might bring.
