14th Annual Puerto Rican Heritage Festival

The Puerto Rican Heritage Society (PRHS) invites San Antonio to attend the 14th Puerto Rican Festival "Fiestas Patronales" at the SA Shrine Auditorium. Our Festivals are considered the largest and oldest Puerto Rican artistic and cultural event in the state of Texas. Local artists and craftsmen, as well as renowned artisans from Puerto Rico, will share their skills and talents with Festival attendees. This year, the artisans arriving from the island will present work done on wood, birds' feathers, paper mache, jewelry, etc. highlighting tropical flora and fauna, characteristic of the Caribbean island. There will be a folklore dance presentation by a local Puerto Rican troupe and dance music will be provided by three Latin bands (Trabuko, Colao, Isis, the Voice) that offer Caribbean sounds and rhythms. Traditional Puerto Rican food and refreshments will be offered for sale throughout the entire event. For the first time, the San Antonio Zoo will be exhibiting the Coqui at the Festival. Everyone is captivated by these little brown frogs and their song. The Coqui are the national symbol of Puerto Rico.

The White Rabbit
Look, most San Antonio music fans have no complaints with the Paper Tiger, a club that consistently brings tons of great touring acts to town. Even so, some who cut their teeth on the St. Mary's Strip still have fond memories of the White Rabbit, the venue that previously occupied the building. It's understandable that folks of a certain age, whether they played the older club or just caught shows there, would have some nostalgia tied up in the Rabbit.

Sinya on Lone Man Creek in Wimberley
“Absolutely perfect weekend getaway! We were worried that it might be too hot inside the tent, as both my husband and I love our room cold, but it was perfect around 70 degrees…especially in the summer. Bed was very comfortable and you could just sink in and sleep. I slept so deeply. It is a beautiful, serene place to stay and I could not recommend it more!” - Yelper Larissa I
