Fiesta Arts Fair Charms Visitors
With Contemporary Art, Family Fun
The long-running Fiesta Arts Fair at San Antonio’s Southwest School of Art is a favorite part of Fiesta San Antonio® for fun-seeking families and art aficionados. “It’s the one Fiesta event we never miss.”
This coming April, the nationally-recognized juried art show will bring 110 of the nation’s most talented artists to San Antonio on Saturday and Sunday, April 20 and 21. Ceramics, paintings, jewelry, glass, photography, wearable art and other high-quality artworks will be for sale to artfully embellish your life.
Fiesta Arts Fair is held on the shady grounds of the art school’s historic Ursuline Campus overlooking San Antonio’s River Walk. More than 12,000 people visit the Fiesta Arts Fair each year, enjoying not only the art and the beautiful setting, but also live music on two stages and traditional fiesta food.
As always, one of the favorite spots for families will be the Children’s Art Garden, where kids work with artists to create their own art, including Fiesta Medals.
Admission, which helps support the educational programs at the non-profit Southwest School, is $10 for adults (or $16 for a two-day pass), and $5 for children 5-12 years old (free for children under 5).
Hours are Sat, 10:00am - 6:00pm and Sun, 11:00am -5:00pm.
