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.

History of Fiesta:

In 1891, a group of ladies decorated horse-drawn carriages, paraded in front of the Alamo, and pelted each other with flower blossoms. The parade was organized to honor the heroes from the battles of the Alamo and San Jacinto. Since 1959 the Fiesta San Antonio Commission has made it happen! In fact, the commission coordinates the Fiesta planning activities of 100 local nonprofit organizations and the more than 75,000 volunteers it takes to make Fiesta San Antonio a real Texas-sized festival.

The Commission acts as the liaison among participating member organizations, military participants, and City of San Antonio to provide services essential to the producing Fiesta San Antonio year after year.

The Commission promotes Fiesta San Antonio regionally, nationally, and internationally, and the festival has become a popular attraction for visitors from far and wide.
