The Fiesta San Antonio Commission announced a new Executive Director, Steve Rosenauer on Monday. Steve had been the Executive Director of St. Mary’s Fiesta Oyster Bake since 1995, one of Fiesta San Antonio’s largest events, drawing a crowd of more than 70,000 people every year.
“I am honored to represent an organization whose beginnings are based on a significant historical event and recognition of the heroes of the Alamo. Coming from St. Louis, MO to attend college at St. Mary’s University, I truly understand the phrase, “I was not born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could,” says Mr. Rosenauer.
Rosenauer brings years of experience in recruiting, training, managing, and evaluating over 400 key volunteers, with a total of 7,000 event volunteers.
“Attending many Fiesta events has been a passion of mine because I believe that each event is unique and special to the overall success of Fiesta. Fiesta’s $340 million economic impact is
amazing, and I have seen first-hand that the Participating Member Organizations (PMO) who put on official Fiesta events, and their 75,000 volunteers, are the success of Fiesta as they contribute their time, talent and treasure to create special memories for 2.5+ million guests and raise funds to support their respective organizations,” says Steve.
