What is Fiesta San Antonio?

Fiesta® San Antonio started in 1891 as a one-parade event to honor the memory of the heroes of the Alamo and the Battle of San Jacinto. That historic commemoration still takes place, but for more than a century, Fiesta® has grown into a celebration of San Antonio’s rich and diverse cultures and today is one of this nation’s premier festivals with an economic impact of more than $340 million. Funds raised by official Fiesta® events provide services to San Antonio citizens throughout the year.

Our Mission

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.

Have Fun. Give Back. Fiesta

The Fiesta Commission is celebrating Women's History Month! Throughout the month of March, we will be highlighting several of our women-led Participating Member Organizations!

Today we are celebrating The Woman's Club of San Antonio

Rich in history and tradition, The Woman's Club of San Antonio celebrates its 123rd anniversary this year. They are a charter member of the Fiesta Commission and participate in several community charities to improve lives in our city.

The Woman's Club has three official Fiesta Events: The Fiesta Flower Show, Fiesta Teenage Queen Coronation, and the ever-popular Fiesta Hat Contest and Luncheon.

Proceeds from the event provide scholarships for local students and contribute to the preservation of the historic landmark mansion that houses The Woman's Club of San Antonio!

VIVA! 🎉🎉
