San Antonio’s inaugural CityFest starts today!

2018 marks the 300th Anniversary of the founding of San Antonio and CityFest is the capstone event for the city’s 300th-anniversary celebrations. The Tricentennial Commission is also a presenting sponsor and has planned a special program with New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell, San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg, a panel of contributing writers from the book 300 Years of San Antonio and Bexar County, and a panel of ‘San Antonio icons,’ who will share stories and memories of key moments in the city’s trajectory from HemisFair ’68 forward.
