Flamenco Fest

Flamenco, with its mixed roots in Spanish, Jewish and Moorish culture, may be the perfect art form to express ideas of migration and multiculturalism. With their latest production Desplazados, part of this year's sixth annual Flamenco Fest at the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center, the Austin-based dance company A'lante Flamenco draws from recent events (such as the influx of unaccompanied children arriving in the U.S. from countries in the Northern Triangle) but also from the experiences of its own members, several of whom are also immigrants living in the United States. Desplazados will mark A'lante Flamenco's second appearance at Flamenco Fest. Their first was in 2012 with their production of The Red Shoes: A Flamenco Fairytale. Now in its sixth year, Flamenco Fest has, for the most part, continued to expand each year since moving from the Cameo Theatre to the Guadalupe Theater in 2013. Highlights: The Guadalupe Dance Company presents an encore performance of Pisando Fuerte: A Flamenco Journey, staged by guest choreographer Miguel Vargas of Seville and featuring San Antonio vocalist Chayito Champion. $15-$35, 8pm Fri, 1301 Guadalupe St. The San Antonio Parks and Recreation Flamenco Dance Program presents Flor Flamenco with performances by Sonya Jimenez, guitarists Steve Arispe and Luis "El Tiburon" Linares, and guest artist Vicente Griego from New Mexico. $15-$35, 8pm Sat, 1301 Guadalupe St. A'lante Flamenco presents Desplazados. The company is the recipient of the Austin Critic's Table Award for Best Ensemble 2013/2014 for their production of Prophecies. $23, 3pm Sun, 1301 Guadalupe St. Carmens de la Calle hosts a pre-show "Dueling Guitars and Paella Brunch" with a performance by guitarists Steve Arispe, Luis "El Tiburon" Linares and Randy Cordero. $45, noon & 2pm Sun, 320 N. Flores St.

Chicken-on-a-Stick
Fiesta favorite chicken-on-a-stick is basically the supreme food booth snack from all of Fiesta. San Antonians look forward to eating it all year, and usually commemorate their first chicken-on-a-stick of the season with a selfie. It’s inspired chicken-on-a-stick necklaces, earrings, stickers and more from local designers, and has appeared on menus across SA so folks can get their fix. Thank goodness for that.
