Southtown The Arts District Festival

For the second year now, Southtown The Arts District (STAD), an organization that fosters community engagement and creativity in the Collins Garden, King William, Lavaca, Lone Star, and Roosevelt neighborhoods, will present a sprawling arts festival of its own. The festival, designed to encourage walking/biking to galleries and other venues within its five-mile radius, was born, according to organizer Yvette Benavides, from a desire to “share with our city who and what makes Southtown tick.” With more than 25 unique events, STAD Festival will augment Luminaria’s offerings, making for one fantastic weekend of arts and exploration. During the day on Saturday (11am-4pm), STAD Festival will present special Luminaria programming alongside its own separate events. Luminaria happenings during this timeframe include Artist Brunches ($35, 11am-12:30pm), a slew of workshops and readings, and a CD sales/signing session with Luminaria-featured musical acts including Castro, Peterson/Hayes Duo, AMEA, Tatsuya Nakatani, Filthy, Daisy & Buck, Henry Brun and King Pelican.

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.
