Fiesta 2016: April 14-24
Stands selling sizzling fajitas. Majorettes strutting as military bands march. Cascarones, colorful eggshells filled with confetti, dotting the crowds with prismatic color as they're broken. Extravagantly decorated floats. Music—mariachi, blues, jazz, rock, country—coming from everywhere. These are just some of the sights and sounds of San Antonio’s Fiesta, our extravagant 11-day citywide party. This year marks the event's 125th anniversary, and we're pulling out all the stops to make it the most exciting, entertaining and unforgettable Fiesta of all time.
