The History of Luminaria San Antonio
Luminaria was founded in 2008 by former mayor, Phil Hardberger, and is a dynamic arts organization that produces this epic annual after-dark arts festival. Inspired by the night-time multi-genre festivals: Nuit Blanche in Paris, and Madrid’s La Noche en Blanco, the festival was conceived in partnership with the City of San Antonio to stimulate and spotlight the city’s artistic development and transform urban spaces into works of art.

This inspiring and exciting festival continues to grow each year, showcasing hundreds of San Antonio artists and their visual art, theatrical and dance performances, film, poetry, light projections, creative demonstrations, music and more.
