Chartered in 1972, the Krewe of the Knights of Sant’ Yago is dedicated to the preservation and enhancement of Tampa’s rich Latin heritage and culture. Comprised of 250 of the Tampa Bay area’s professional men, the Krewe of Sant’ Yago is represented each year by our El Rey (King) and his La Reina (Queen), and their Royal Court of Ladies-In-Waiting, Courtesanos, Pages, Attendants and Royal Sword Bearer.
The Krewe of Sant’ Yago has hosted the Sant’ Yago Illuminated Knight Parade every year since 1974. The parade is a celebration of Tampa’s long Latin heritage and civic pride, brightening the streets of Ybor City’s Seventh Avenue for a special night of floats, costumes, beads, and merriment.
Our Mission & Vision
The Knights of Sant’ Yago are dedicated to preserving, enhancing, and perpetuating the proud Latin heritage, mores, and culture of the city of Tampa; and to encourage gregarious appetites for brotherhood, merriment, and social festivities with a Latin theme.
