2018 isn’t just a new year – it is the year of San Antonio’s 300th anniversary – and the tricentennial festivities have already begun!
San Antonio will host a "Commemorative Week" to celebrate the official date, which is May 5, 2018. Throughout this week, key milestones will be recognized from exactly 300 years earlier. But the fun doesn’t stop there! The Alamo City, which is known for its annual 10-day long FIESTA® celebration, has more than 700 events scheduled across each of the twelve months to celebrate its founding date.
From art and history exhibits, to fitness challenges and community service projects, there are many ways to get involved in the 7th largest U.S. city’s birthday. For a full line-up of events and how to participate, click here.
The tricentennial year will offer San Antonians an opportunity to discover the city’s roots, commemorate its storied history, recognize its progress and collaborate on a bright future.
