St. Joseph's Day & The Return of the Swallows

Tue Mar 19, 2019
10:00am to 3:00pm
All ages
Adults $12; Children (4-11) $8

St. Joseph's Day marks the annual return of the swallows to San Juan Capistrano. The mission's celebration is marked by pageantry, the traditional bell ringing at the sight of the first swallows, and a celebration with musical performances, crafts, living history characters, and plenty of food.

A guest lecturer shares information about the swallows and their history at the mission.

Note that the celebration at the mission is not the same day as the Swallows' Day Parade this year.
