Look for 2016 Fiesta Days Parade information in February 2016!

Good Day!

Spanish Fork City is proud to announce the 2018 Spanish Fork Fiesta Days Grand Parade. This year's theme is "Spanish Fork State of Mind". The parade will begin at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, July 24, 2018.

Judging this year will take place prior to the beginning of the parade. If you would like to have your entry judged, you must be in your staging area by 8:15 a.m. with all participants on your entry. Judging will begin at 8:15 a.m. and will be done based on how well the float supports this year's theme, with preference being given to those floats that are most original. The judges' decision will be made prior to the beginning of the Grand Parade. Banners announcing the awards will precede the winners on the parade route.

Regardless of whether you wish to have your entry judged, the first half of the parade line-up must be in their assigned space no later than 8 a.m., with the second half in place by 8:30 a.m. You will need to register and be in place by your assigned time to confirm your placement in the line-up. If you are in the 2nd half of the parade and wish to be judged, you must be in place by 8:15 a.m. as stated above.

Spanish Fork Fiesta Days Grand Parade is one of the biggest events during our city celebration. We hope you will join us this year for the fun and excitement. We look forward to receiving your entry form. Consideration will be given as to parade line-up order based on when entries are received. The entry deadline is June 8, 2018. Please be sure to get your application in early! Entries received after this date will be charged a $50 LATE FEE if they are accepted into the parade.

This year's parade will be limited to approximately 100 entries, and preference will be given to non-commercial entries and to commercial entries whose entries support this year's Fiesta Days theme. Due to this limited availability, submitting a parade application form does not guarantee entrance into the parade line-up.

Please review all of the information and submit your entry application - including a detailed description and photo (or sketch) of your float/entry-as soon as possible. Applications MUST be submitted online at Applications should be received no later than June 8, 2018. HOWEVER, PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE PAYMENT WITH YOUR APPLICATION. An acceptance or denial letter will be mailed to you within two (2) weeks of receiving your application. The decision of the parade committee regarding which entries are and which entries are not accepted into the parade is final. The parade line-up and other necessary information will be mailed out 14 days (two weeks) prior to the parade.

The purpose of the Fiesta Days Parade is to provide fun, relaxation and patriotism for the citizens of Spanish Fork and the viewing audience. The safety and operation of your float, group or organization are your sole responsibility. The parade committee reserves the right to cancel any accepted entry at any time should it be determined that the entry does not comply with the purpose of the parade. In addition, by submitting your application, you agree to release Spanish Fork City and its representatives from any and all liabilities related in any way to your organization's participation in the parade.

New this year: No passengers will be allowed to sit in the back of a truck that is pulling a trailer or float. There were a couple of kids killed in parades last year as a result of falling out of the back of the truck and being run over by the trailer immediately behind the truck.

THERE WILL BE ZERO TOLERANCE FOR ANY PROJECTILE (candy, objects, water, etc.) thrown from any moving vehicle. Any water shooting device (blasters, cannons or squirt guns) are prohibited. Items thrown create a hazardous environment for spectators running toward moving vehicles. Also, spectators have complained about being sprayed by water. FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THESE REGULATIONS WILL RESULT IN YOUR IMMEDIATE REMOVAL FROM THE PARADE. If you are removed, no refund will be given.

The distribution of items along the parade route has become a serious problem. It has resulted in an increase in the amount of trash left along the parade route and more importantly has become a safety hazard for spectators. We want our Grand Parade to be FUN, but more importantly SAFE. Therefore, the distribution of advertisements, literature, candy, gum, treats or promotional items ON THE PARADE ROUTE may be done ONLY upon the following conditions:

Distribution Policy -

  1. Distributed items, including candy, may not be thrown to or in the direction of spectators, but must be handed to an individual. Distribution must not occur in any manner which encourages or rewards spectators that move from the viewing area (behind the fog line at the side of the road) into ANY PORTION of the street assigned to the parade route.
  2. If in the opinion of a Fiesta Days or Parade Committee Official, the continued distribution of materials or items could endanger Parade spectators or participants, the official may ask entry participants to cease from the distribution of these materials or items. Spanish Fork City and Parade Committee Officials will bear no responsibility for any financial or opportunity loss associated with this request.
  3. Violators may be subject to prosecution, as appropriate, under Utah Statutory Code.

We are excited about this year's Spanish Fork Fiesta Days celebration and hope to include your organization in the parade. If you have additional questions, please feel free to email us at
