The 2005 PBA Fiesta Conference was the 2004-05 season's PBA Fiesta Conference of the Philippine Basketball Association. It was the second-staging of the Fiesta Conference.

The San Miguel Beermen won its 17th PBA title with a 4-1 series victory over the Talk 'N Text Phone Pals in the finals. [1] The league finally allowed Asi Taulava to play in the series (who was indefinitely suspensed) but still lost to the veteran-laided Beermen. [2] The Shell Turbo Chargers won third place over Red Bull Barako in a one-game playoff, the last appearance of the Turbo Chargers in the league, as it filed for a leave of absence in August 2005, eventually selling the rights to Welcoat.

Talk N' Text's Willie Miller was named the Best Player of the Conference while teammate Jerald Honeycutt won the Best Import plum.
