You can help put on San Antonio’s
It is the Party With a Purpose because your sponsor dollars allow the Fiesta® San Antonio Commission to support the 100 local nonprofits that produce most of Fiesta’s 100-plus events.
Become a part of the excitement!
Fiesta® San Antonio has been a tradition in the Alamo City since April 1891, when local women decorated their carriages with live flowers, met in front of the Alamo and threw the blossoms at one another—the first Battle of Flowers. Within a few years, the Battle of Flowers® Parade was joined by coronations of local “royalty,” a carnival, patriotic ceremonies, banquets, the Fiesta Flambeau® Parade, the Texas Cavaliers River Parade and many other activities.
Today 100 local nonprofit groups, members of the Fiesta®San Antonio Commission, stage more than 100 events over 11 days with the help of more than 75,000 volunteers.
As a sponsor of Fiesta San Antonio, your company’s name, logo, and products or services can be seen by millions of San Antonio residents and visitors through those 11 days!
Overseeing the massive effort that is Fiesta® is a single nonprofit umbrella organization—the Fiesta San Antonio Commission. The “voice” of Fiesta®, the commission is the unifying force for the entire festival. The commission is governed by an all-volunteer board of community leaders and representatives from its nonprofit participating member organizations.
Why do business leaders in the San Antonio community become involved as corporate sponsors of the Fiesta Commission? Because they see the tremendous value it provides to the area and to their business. Here’s Mark L. Koshnick, President of Capital One Bank, San Antonio/ Rio Grande
Valley Commercial Banking:
“As a leading corporate citizen in San Antonio, Capital One Bank is pleased to step up to the plate in support of Fiesta. We believe it’s important to support events that build civic pride in the communities we serve. Additionally, we believe that our involvement with Fiesta® has made a significant contribution in growing Capital One Bank’s presence in San Antonio and as a corporate sponsor we also like the fact that Fiesta continues to grow in popularity each year. We consider our support of Fiesta as an investment in the community we serve and encourage other local and national companies to support San Antonio’s biggest annual celebration as well. Viva Fiesta!”
