Planning is underway for San Juan Bautista Mission Fiesta 2014.  The Marines look for a few good volunteers.  The Fiesta Committee needs good volunteers, from the Mission and from the town.  This annual Fiesta celebrates the 200-plus year history and all the peoples…past and present; Native American, Spanish, and Anglo…who have made San Juan Bautista the wonderful city it has become.  The Fiesta makes for a huge “family” gathering, and helps to continue revitalizing our city.  


The Committee asks those with organizational skills, historical knowledge, helpful equipment, artistic talents, and other such gifts to step forward.  Others are also needed for the many teams that operate Fiesta.  Would you like to join an action subcommittee to make things happen?  It takes more than a hundred people to set up, run activities and booths, clean up and put away.  Working with the Fiesta Committee gives the true satisfaction of doing good for others.  Don’t let your good skills go to waste.  


Fiesta 2014 will be Sunday, June 22nd in the historic Mission Olive Grove.  It is open to all with free admission, free stage entertainment, affordable food, free demonstrations, and affordable activities.  The Fiesta is planned and staffed entirely by volunteers.  Whatever is earned, above expenses, is dedicated to the reconstruction and repair of the 200+ year old Mission and museum for the enjoyment of generations to come.


David and Diana Bruce again co-chair a blue-ribbon committee.  Under their leadership, the committee will maintain the caliber and quality of the event that everyone has come to expect.  The live entertainment, new games and famous chicken barbecue promise to continue making this Fiesta a major, multi-cultural, family event for the summer.


To be part of this on-going historical event, drop in to the next planning meeting on Thursday, April 20th, 6:30-8:30 PM, near the Mission offices.  Contact David and Diana for more information at (408) 500-8353 or at
