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 led by a board of directors and is 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. The 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: the
New Membership Mixer, the
Taste of San Juan, the Kid's Pet Parade, the El Presidente Ball, the
Fiesta Grande which includes the Hairiest Man
& Soiled Dove Contests, and the infamous
Day round-up. All culminating with the
