The Whole Enchilada Fiesta is a three-day celebration of southern New Mexico’s traditions, people and great food. The celebration is centered around the making of the largest enchilada around. Chef and founder of the Fiesta, Robert V. Estrada, combines southwest ingredients to make the crowd pleasing enchiladas.
For the past 27 years, the three day fiesta has been attracting community members and business people. The event showcases the area’s finest artists, businesses, organizations and services. Community members are able to interact and enjoy New Mexico in a fun and exciting environment.
The Fiesta has been recognized as one of the top 100 events in the USA and the 3rd largest in New Mexico. Recent recognition of Roberto Estrada's World Record Enchilada by the Guinness Book of World Records in England has brought a high level of visibility to The Whole Enchilada Fiesta. Each year over 40,000 people attend from twenty plus states. The Fiesta covers three days toward the end of September. The Fiesta provides a quality experience for families and young adults. The many activities, crafts booths, carnival, car & motorcycle show, New Mexico's largest parade, and cultural and headliner entertainment fill the three day schedule. The Fiesta also has a rich history of community involvement and volunteerism. The City of Las Cruces' support is instrumental in producing the event each year.
