Fiesta of Five Flags (often abbreviated simply Fiesta) is an annual celebration, similar to Mardi Gras, that commemorates Pensacola's foundation as the first European settlement in America and rich history under five governments (represented by the eponymous flags). The Fiesta was founded in 1950.

Highlights include the annual Coronation of Don Tristan DeLuna, the Fiesta Days celebration, the DeLuna Treasure Hunt and Fiesta Children's Treasure Hunt.
