Best Non-Fiesta Festival

Winner: Síclovía

While San Antonians consistently get a bad rap for being inactive, the undulating popularity of Síclovía proves this notion wrong. The free festival is a bi-annual event (though it has inspired spinoffs and special edition events) thrown by the YMCA of Greater San Antonio that converts main roads in Southtown into moveable car-free spaces that encourage people (some of whom choose to dress up in whacky costumes) and even their furry friends to take exercise classes, ride their bikes, rollerblade, run, play and even Zumba in the streets. It's great for entire families because everyone can decide what they want to participate in. There are usually treats for your pets, food trucks, live music and activities for kids. The family-friendly event also spotlights local businesses and connects residents with community organizations. Whether you're a Siclovia veteran or still meaning to take part, be sure to pencil in the next Síclovía, scheduled for September 30.
