About the Fiesta San Antonio Commission
The Fiesta® San Antonio Commission Inc. is a nonprofit, volunteer, self-supporting organization that plans, promotes, coordinates, and preserves Fiesta® San Antonio through support of its Participating Member Organizations in presenting a safe, educational, annual celebration of the diverse heritage, culture and spirit of San Antonio for its residents and visitors.
Fiesta® San Antonio is a fusion of arts, heritage and culture and culminates every year in April— to honor the memory of the heroes of the Alamo and the Battle of San Jacinto. Taking place over 11 days each April, Fiesta literally has something for everyone with more than 110 events featuring a range of music, food, sports and pageantry to military and patriotic observances, exhibits, parades, Fiesta® Royalty and more. Fiesta is also the best way to have fun while giving back because when you attend any of the Official Fiesta events, you are supporting the missions of more than 100 local nonprofit organizations. Those nonprofit organizations spend the rest of the year giving back to the community of San Antonio.
