Texas Folklife Festival

When O.T. Baker attended the first Smithsonian Folklife Festival in 1968, he returned home with plans for San Antonio’s own version. Inaugurated in 1972, the Texas Folklife Festival now proudly “showcases the Lone Star State’s diversity and rich heritage through a wide variety of ethnic food, music, dance, arts, and crafts.” The three-day festival will host more than 170 groups and individuals representing over 40 cultures, including 13 that “have have been with the festival for all 46 years,” says James Benavides, Senior Communications Specialist at the Institute of Texan Cultures. New additions to the menu will include soul food and Vietnamese dishes; and guests can enjoy entertainment from the likes of Ukrainians of San Antonio, Hula Halua Ohana Elikapeka, Chilean Folklife and many more.
