SAN ANTONIOFiesta isn’t just an excuse to eat awesome food and celebrate one of the greatest cities in the U.S. — it’s a 100+-year-old tradition that dates back to the 1800s.

Also known as the party-with-a-purpose, Fiesta is the largest annual event in San Antonio and generates more than $340 million in economic impact for the community.

Fiesta has been celebrated every year since, except 1918 during World War I, 1942-1945 during World War II and 2020 and 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
