One of the world’s great mariachi groups, Mariachi Compañas de America, take the stage with the San Antonio Symphony at Fiesta Pops. This musical extravaganza captures the heady spirit of Fiesta, while the modern comfort and world-class acoustics of the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts make you feel like part of the performance.
If you like the idea of savoring margaritas and delicious food on the River Walk as mariachis serenade you, don’t miss the Mariachi Festival! Local, regional and national jazz musicians show off their talents at the annual Fiesta World Class Jazz Concert. Among the outstanding performers at past concerts were Kenny Garrett, Maynard Ferguson, George Garzone, Paquito D’Rivera and Terence Blanchard. Best of all, this amazing jazz event is free.
Singing the blues will never be more enthralling than it is when musicians weave their spells at the Fiesta Blues Heritage Series at historic Sunset Station, offering possibly the perfect finale to Fiesta fun. The San Antonio Metropolitan Ballet performs both classical and contemporary dance pieces at Dance Kaleidoscope. Glimpse one of our national cultural treasures at the Celebrations of Traditions Pow Wow, where Native Americans perform gourd and other intertribal dances. Booths at the show sell Native American arts, and admission is free.
