A Celebration of the Swallows’ Return to San Juan Capistrano

The 60th Swallows Day Parade and Mercado Street Faire will be held on March 24, 2018. The Swallows Day Parade is part of the Fiesta de las Golondrinas, or Festival of the Swallows, a celebration of the return of the migratory songbird to Mission San Juan Capistrano on St. Joseph’s Day. During this three-month Fiesta de las Golondrinas, the Fiesta Association is responsible for various fundraising and community activities including Taste of San Juan, Kids Pet Parade, El Presidenté Ball, Fiesta Grande which includes the Hairiest Man & Soiled Dove Contests, and the infamous Hoos’Gow Day round-up, all culminating with the Swallows Day Parade and The Mercado.
