Barbacoa & Big Red Festival
At this point, it’s a San Anto cliché to reference how well Big Red pairs with barbacoa. But, that doesn’t change the magnitude of the experience one bit. In its sixth year, the Barbacoa & Big Red Festival understands this. And, as if sampling goods from an array of contestants in a barbacoa cook-off weren’t enough, attendees are also treated to a solid offering of live music by Texas country charmer Natalie Rose, Southern rock/country outfit Mario Flores and The Soda Creek Band (from Helotes), and SA music legend Ernie Garibay and his band Cats Don’t Sleep. $5-$15, 10am-8:30pm Sun, R & J Music Pavilion, 18086 Pleasanton Road, (210) 628-6200, barbacoabigredfestival.com.
