A Celebration of the Swallows’ Return to San Juan Capistrano


March 25, 2023!

Swallows Day is back on schedule and celebrating a return to tradition with the 63rd Annual Swallows Day Parade. Last year our horses were quarantined because of a deadly equine virus, so for the first time in 62 years that parade was motorized. We are grateful to all of the motorized and specialty entries who came in at the last minute and helped make the 2022 Parade a spectacular event.

Our Grand Marshal for 2023 is Actor Dennis Quaid and our theme is Back in the Saddle Again!
