The Fiesta® San Antonio Commission is a nonprofit organization that plans, promotes, coordinates and preserves Fiesta®, a more than 128 year-old tradition celebrating San Antonio’s culture and diversity.
One of the largest events in Texas, Fiesta started out with a single parade in 1891. Fiesta now draws 3.5 million people annually to 11 event packed days of fun. Over 100 nonprofit organizations work to put on the events of Fiesta. Many of these nonprofits are able to raise their operating budgets for the entire year through Fiesta.
The Fiesta San Antonio Commission depends in part on the support of partners, like you, to help accomplish the mission to grow and improve Fiesta. Advertising through the Fiesta San Antonio Commission is a great way to gain exposure for event, organization or business!
