Dia de los Muertos, La Villita

For Sure Festivals in San Antonio

River City makes a great host.

A visit to southern Texas yields city-wide celebrations of food, music, and heritage to a month-long commemoration to photography in small galleries throughout SanAn.

See when you're in town for these must-go events:

1. SA Stock Show & Rodeo

Established in 1950, the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo is held over three weeks in February at the AT&T Center.

Recognized by the PRCA Pro-Rodeo Hall of Fame, the show SASSR also features livestock shows, games, food, shopping, and massive concerts.

2. Fiesta

SA's biggest festival, Fiesta is an 11-day, 100-event celebration held in spring across the city.

Parties go down in the La Villita Historic Arts Village, the River Walk, and the Alamo. Started in 1891, Fiesta features parades, carnivals, live music, shopping, and of course, awesome food.

3. Texas Folklife Festival

Founded in 1972, the Texas Folklife Festival is held at the Institute of Texan Cultures – operated by the University of Texas at San Antonio.

Set in downtown's HemisFair Park in June, the three-day events yields live performances, food, classic cars, and a massive marketplace.

4. Fotoseptiembre USA

Also held throughout River City, the annual Fotoseptiembre USA International Photography Festival takes place the entire month of September. Exceptional photographic pieces of art are on display across the many galleries and museums of San Antonio.

5. JazzSALive

Also held in September, JazzSALive is a massive jazz festival held annually in downtown's Travis Park. This weekend event brings local, national, and worldwide musicians to two main stages – and also offers food, shopping, and games.

6. International Accordion Festival

Held in La Villita, the annual International Accordion Festival is a free downtown event set for mid-September. Held on two stages, this cultural event is designed to tell the story of immigrant America through the best voice possible – the accordion!

7. Dia de los Muertos

Scheduled annual for November, Dia de los Muertos takes over historic La Villita for two days.

Don't miss performing arts like music, plays, and poetry, and try shopping through handmade items and home cooked food – all for free!

8. Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza Music Festival

A week-long music event, the Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza Music Festival is the longest and largest in Texas – and that's saying something.

Set for December, the final performance is held at the Lila Cockrell Theatre at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.
