San Antonio Founder's Day is This Weekend

By October 22, 2009

Did you know that San Antonio has a Founder's Day celebration? You may not know because this is a relatively new celebration to the city, with 2009 marking only the sixth year that the celebration has taken place.

This year's event is at the Alamo this Saturday from 10:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. It starts with an hour-long musical tribute and then begins cultural and historical exhibits, music and dance.

There are a lot of other things to do this weekend as well, in case you don't make it out to the Alamo.

On Saturday, there is a great program at the Blue Star Arts Complex that is sponsored by HEB called ArtSMART Family Day. It allows children to learn about and participate in art projects. The San Antonio Children's Museum is also having an art-themed event the same day called The Arts Cart.

If you don't mind a short drive to Boerne, you can go to the Wild West Day. It is a celebration of Old West culture where the Enchanted Springs Ranch is transformed into an 1800s Western town.

Mission San Jose has a two-day celebration of Folk Art called Artesanos Del Pueblo. And finally, there is a big musical bash at the Lone Star Brewery called Indie Bash at the Brewery.
