San Antonio Reggae Festival

A year ago, the inaugural San Antonio Reggae Festival (not to be confused with BobFest fka Marley Fest) went down at Rosedale Park, in the heart of a vibrant and proud community, to little fanfare. The event, however, was a success in many ways, and it’s back again for its sophomore year of celebrating reggae (and dancehall) music and the rich cultural heritage that surrounds it. Reggae is, after all, a music for proclaiming joy and lifting practitioners and audiences alike out of darkness. This year’s family-friendly affair will feature Jamaican acts like pioneering 1980s reggae/dancehall DJ King Yellowman, dancehall duo Tanto Metro and Devonte and more. Several SA-based reggae groups with also take the stage, including the Skunk Brothers and Saltwater Slide. Besides the live music, SA Reggae Festival 2017 will also feature drinks, food trucks, assorted vendors, and a special children's area. Canned donations will be happily accepted on behalf of the San Antonio Food Bank.

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.
