Every town in America has its own events and celebrations that define it. But few are as colorful, as historical and as meaningful as Fiesta San Antonio – a party with a purpose! Fiesta San Antonio originated in 1891. It began humbly, as a parade to honor the memory of the brave heroes of the Alamo and the Battle of San Jacinto. It has now evolved into one of the country’s premier festivals. Although a festive and fun event, the party also plays an important role in supporting our city – nearly 284 million dollars annually are raised by official Fiesta events to fund services to San Antonio and Alamo citizens throughout the year. Fiesta has grown into a massive celebration of San Antonio’s rich and diverse cultures – and is now in its 126th year!
Over 3.5 million revelers celebrate Fiesta San Antonio annually, with nearly one-fifth of them traveling from other cities, states, and even other countries! A diverse calendar of events – with hundreds of ways to celebrate – spans 10 days, from April 20-30. Venues across the city host parades to beauty pageants, food festivals, carnivals, sporting events, car shows, musical events – and of course, the crowning of Rey Feo!
Be sure to check out the many events – including parades, concerts, and the All Veterans Memorial Service – that reflect the original purpose of the day, to honor our military, past and present.
Celebrate living in San Antonio by decorating your home, office, and party with bright festive Fiesta wreaths and vivid floral displays from hometown florist The Flower Bucket. As residents ourselves we are just as excited about the festival which brings so much attention to the amazing history and culture of our beloved city – and allows us to have a great time with family and friends. Give us a call today, it is almost time to get the party started!
