San Antonio has such a rich cultural background that is best displayed every April through Fiesta. My favorite events are as follows.
- NIOSA (Night in old San Antonio)- It’s like a delicious history lesson to San Antonio- every food item you can think of, each representing a different culture and ethnic background. Start with a cowboy klopse (deep-fried meatball with spicy jalapeno batter) and then move over to fried okra and marinated steak kabobs.
- Taste of New Orleans-Cajun and creole cooking with a great mix of people. Spicy food with a rice, red beans and etouffes are a fun shift from the norm.
- King William Fair- The best parade to watch and best watched while holding a great cold beverage. The houses and eclectic building in this part of town are a worth the trip alone.
- A Taste of the North Side- 50 local restaurant present their best dishes- Kirby’s Steakhouse, Tap Exchange, Bistro Six, Rumi Lounge, and Two Bros- all great. The event is held at The Club at Sonterra with a variety of beer and wine tastsings. It’s a good idea to get tickets in advance.
Take in everything that this city has to offer. Fiesta events are a great way to see a new side of the city we know and love.
