Looking for something to do while you are at the SOHS' conference.

In 1922, New Port Richey citizens planned a celebration to attract people to the thriving young city and to raise money for the community library. Gerben DeVries, the city’s first postmaster, was given the task of preparing something new to serve as a program. Inspired by his interest in Florida Indian tribes and the enchanting beauty of the river flowing through the city, he combined the two to create a fictional pageant. This pageant gave the celebration its theme, the beautiful Pithlachascotee River loaned its name to the central characters (King Pithla and Queen Chasco) and a tradition was born. The romantic legend intertwined the lives of a Spanish boy and girl, a priest and the Calusa Indian tribe who captured them after defeating a Spanish expedition. According to the story, the boy and girl were later wed as Queen Chasco and her consort Pithla.

Since then Chasco Fiesta™ has been held continuously since 1947 making the 2019 event the 73rd continuous. The boat parade is said to be the oldest in the state with the first being in 1922.

Chasco Fiesta is a wonderful event, rich in heritage and culture. Yet this event is not just about having a good time. It is about helping organizations raise funds so that they may continue to assist our community. We are proud to continue that legacy of giving today and grateful that we get to do it while putting smiles on faces
