SAN ANTONIO, Texas – San Antonio’s biggest cultural fair is finally happening after multiple delays due to COVID-19.

The event, taking place June 17-27, will celebrate San Antonio’s culture, heritage, and passion for giving back to the community. Compared to previous years it will be smaller, with 50 out of the 115+ events participating, but will promise to bring a celebration to remember, according to a news release.

Each event scheduled will adhere to their own COVID-19 protocols, including city, state, and federal guidelines such as the CDC, per the release.

Fiesta San Antonio was originally scheduled in April of last year but was canceled due to the ongoing pandemic. San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg told KSAT he hoped by June of this year it would be safer as vaccinations are ramping up in Texas.

Some of the events confirmed include the Fiesta Run to Remember, The Ford Mariachi Festival, and Fiesta Gartenfest.
