Fiesta Colors by Year

Over its 80 year run, Fiesta has released many, many colors. However, each year only certain colors were offered. With the re-release in 1986 they began each year to retire one color and introduce a new color.

After much research we have determined exactly what colors were released in any given year

It is interesting to see the change in the public's tastes as the colors offered change. Compare the original colors in 1936 with the offerings when production began again in 1986.
