What is A Taste of New Orleans – Fiesta San Antonio

A Taste of New Orleans

What is A Taste of New Orleans?  Is it kid-friendly, or should I get a babysitter?  Where is it?  These are just a few questions I have received, and I wanted to provide some answers.

Parking: we paid $10 at the lot closest to the event (I think it was the SAWS lot)

Location: Sunken Garden Theatre at the Japanese Tea Gardens – 3875 N St Mary's St, San Antonio, TX 78212

What is A Taste of New Orleans

Taste of New Orleans at Fiesta:

From A Taste of New Orleans:  If you want to experience unique and exquisite New Orleans food in a festive atmosphere, don’t miss this three-day fest, alive and kickin’ with the tastes and sounds of ‘Nawlins. Nowhere else can you experience mouth-watering Creole and Cajun dishes like gumbo, crawfish, shrimp etouffee, red beans & rice, boudin and many other favorite cuisines of the region. You will think you are in New Orleans at this family-friendly event featuring amazing toe-tappin’ music from Dixieland to Smooth Jazz and Zydeco straight from the Crescent City. Join the 2nd line parade through the grounds with a brass band leading the way, or simply sit back, relax and enjoy the entertainment while taking in the Big Easy experience.  The Sunken Garden is ADA-accessible. Blankets, strollers, and folding chairs are welcome.

Kid Friendly: Kinda. I personally felt this was good for adults and teens, but not kids, especially littles. It was crowded and hard to walk, with very little seating and only some kid food. I won't be bringing my kids to this event.

Activities:

  • Lots of Food Vendors, probably the most I have seen yet, and the most unique food too!
  • Drink stations are a bit more limited than other places, no wine at all.
  • Watch the bands on the main stage (bring your own chair & blanket)
  • Mini carnival

Mom Tips if you bring the kids:

  • Wear closed-toe, comfy shoes.
  • Bring money as the activities and food are kinda expensive.
  • Bring hand wipes and antibacterial, there aren't even hand washing stations
  • It's not wagon or stroller-friendly.

And my overall is a thumbs up for A Taste of New Orleans. I LOVE creole food but a heads up, the food we had was more like carnival food. Also it was crowded (had to eat my mudbugs sitting in the dirt), couldn't clean my hands and it was expensive.  I don't know, I think I got too excited about this event and found it to fall short from my expectation.
