There's fun stuff happening in this city all year long. For an adventurous spirit, such as myself, it's awesome to be able to experience events for twelve
consecutive months. The month of July has three special features to highlight on our calendar of events:
July is Contemporary Art Month
This festival features more than 400 exhibitions and involves more than 50 venues. This is the only month-long festival of its kind in the entire nation. The events are held in galleries, museums, local neighborhoods, and studios. There is an admission charge for some of the events so please contact the Office of Cultural Affairs at 210-533-5762 or sanantonio.gov/art for more information.
Annual San Antonio Conjunto Shootout
I guess the best way for me to explain this is to say that this is a competitive event. It's a three day event that pairs up conjunto groups to battle it out in friendly, non-combative, competition. There will be plenty of entertainment, food, and art to enjoy. Check it out at the Market Place Square, admission is free! For more info contact the City of San Antonio Parks and Recreation @ 210-207-8600.
Fourth of July Celebrations
Lastly, but certainly not least is the Fourth of July Celebrations! There will be festivals, concerts, and fireworks all across the city. Contact 800-447-3372 for exact locations.
