01 Jun It’s Officially Fiesta Season: Where To Find The Best Fiesta Fashion In The City!
Tis’ the season to Fiesta San Antonio! After a long and stress bounding year we have had, the City of San Antonio can finally be back to its hues of bright magentas, teals and yellows galore, sipping on cold beers and raising a chicken on a stick cheers with family and friends. Although this years Fiesta will look a bit different, being in the scorching Texas heat of June and under COVID safe regulations, the overall celebration will feel familiar.
For our non-San Antonio readers, you may be confused as to what Fiesta is. Fiesta® San Antonio started in 1891 as a one-parade event as a way to honor the memory of the heroes of the Alamo and the Battle of San Jacinto. While the city still celebrates the commemoration, Fiesta has evolved into a 2 week celebration (officially), some even staring up to a month prior, bringing in over $340 million in revenue for the city and millions of patrons between San Antonians and visitors from all around the world. Fiesta is a city-wide party, and a great chance to play with fashion. Because of this, we have created a list of local small businesses who bring us the best in Fiesta fashion!
Fiesta will officially run through June 17-27th, kicking off with Fiesta Fiesta at Hemisfair Park, in Downtown San Antonio on Thursday the 17th. A short but sweet city-wide celebration calls for the latest in fashion, here is our fun list of all things Fiesta fashion. Viva Fiesta!
