Viva Fiesta!

Fiesta in San Antonio is officially upon us and half the people I encounter are excited and ready for the big week and others have no idea what is going on.  This post is to talk about What is Fiesta in San Antonio TX?

What is Fiesta? Fiesta is a festival. It began more than 120 years ago as a way to honor the memory of the heroes of the Alamo and the Battle of San Jacinto. Today Fiesta celebrates the diversity and culture of San Antonio with 10 days of events that take place across the whole city.

Is Fiesta family friendly? Almost all of the events hosted by Fiesta are family friendly, only a few are exclusive to adults and they are mostly banquets, fundraisers and events of the like.  See the Fiesta Event Calendar to check out which events are all for the family.

Is there a carnival? Yes and a pretty sweet one that lasts all 10 days.

Where do I buy tickets for events I know I want to attend?  Here or at the gate for most events.  Note – events do sell out and banquet/fundraisers typically require a ticket in advance.

Are there any parades we can attend?  Oh man, oh man are there parades, by land and by water 🙂  check the Fiesta Events Calendar to see which ones are best for you.

What are Fiesta Medals?  See the photo below for what just a few of my 2018 Fiesta medals look like.  To see some of the Voted Coolest medals check out My San Antonio's list here.  Medals have been around since 1905, but have recently taken off as a trend.  San Antonians use them to promote their businesses, organizations and as family momentos.  Majority of the medals are sold to support a non-profit in our local area.
