New Mexico York Rite Land of Enchantment Festival 2023

From Friday, August 25, 2023 -  08:00am
To Saturday, August 26, 2023 - 05:00pm













Brothers, Companions and Sir Knights, Welcome!

The Land of Enchantment degree festival is back!  We are confident that this will be a great experience to start our Brothers’ journey in the Chapter, Council and Commandery. In addition, it will offer another good fraternal and ritual experience for our Companions and Sir Knights. We hope you will join us for this exciting event.

We are once again working with Montezuma Lodge No. 1 and Cerrillos No. 19 (same building) to provide a convenient and inclusive festival experience for our candidates and members. Our degree and order work will all happen within the Lodge building at 431 Paseo De Peralta Santa Fe, NM, 87501.

We are working with the Valley of Santa Fe Scottish Rite to provide accommodations during the festival in the dorms at the Scottish Rite (located right across the parking lot from Montezuma Lodge). Rooms will be available Thursday and Friday night at a cost of $10 per night. Please indicate if you will need a room on the registration form below.

Breakfast and Lunch will be provided on Friday and Saturday.  Dinner will be provided on Friday with the costs noted on the registration form. Coffee, Tea, and Water will be provided throughout the day.

PLEASE start contacting Brothers whom you believe may be interested as soon as possible! We are limiting our candidate registrations to those received BEFORE August 18, 2023. In addition, these Brothers must have already been voted upon by their respective York Rite bodies and accepted.


We look forward to seeing you at Montezuma Lodge No. 1! For further information please contact:
