The San Juan Capistrano Fiesta Association is an all-volunteer organization that manages and produces the annual Swallows Day Parade and other Fiesta de las Golondrinas events
throughout the year. A nonprofit, nonpolitical organization, the Fiesta Association is
a fun group of community minded volunteers. We are entirely self-funded through sponsorships, donations and various fundraising activities.
The 56th presentation of the Swallows Day Parade and Mercado
will be on Saturday, March 22, 2014. The Swallows Day Parade is part of the larger Fiesta de
las Golondrinas or Festival of the Swallows. Fiesta de las Golondrinas is tied to the legendary return of the swallows to the Mission San
Juan Capistrano on St. Joseph's Day, March 19th. The fame of this event and the
yearly return of the Swallows have reached all parts of the world.
During this three-month Fiesta de las Golondrinas, the Fiesta Association is
responsible for various fund raising and community activities. Some of these activities and events include
New Membership Mixer,
Taste of San Juan, Kids Pet Parade, El Presidente Ball,
Fiesta Grande which includes the Hairiest Man
& Soiled Dove Contests, and the infamous
Day round-up. All culminating with the
Swallows Day Parade and
Mercado Street Faire.
We invite you to join us and get involved with the fun loving
volunteer members of the San Juan Capistrano Fiesta Association. We also hope
you will enjoy many if not all of our community activities.
