La Fiesta de las Seis Banderas, a non-profit organization, was founded in 1986 to provide for educational, charitable and civic needs by receiving, investing and disbursing funds to carry out the preservation and/or development of cultural and historic attributes of the Town of Highland Park and the City of University Park. La Fiesta promotes neighborhood spirit by observing special events designed to celebrate traditions, bring citizens together and honor young people, thereby recognizing the unique heritage of the Park Cities.
The first La Fiesta presented six Duchesses representing families of Highland Park and University Park. Each Duchess wore a historically accurate gown representing one of the six flags of Texas.
Since 1986, more than $8.8 million has been raised.
This year, forty Duchesses will be presented at the 2019 La Fiesta de las Seis Banderas Gala to be held on June15 at the Hilton Anatole Hotel, escorted by forty young men.
