The 59th Swallows Day Parade and Mercado Street Faire will be held on March 25, 2017. The Swallows Day Parade is part of the much larger Fiesta de las Golondrinas or Festival of the Swallows. The Fiesta de las Golondrinas is tied to the return of the swallows to the Mission San Juan Capistrano on St. Joseph's Day. 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 including New Membership Mixer, 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. We invite you to get involved with the Fiesta Association. The San Juan Capistrano Fiesta Association is an all-volunteer organization that manages and produces the annual Swallows Day Parade and the many other fun and exciting Fiesta de las Golondrinas events that are held throughout the year.
