Fiesta de los Reyes at Market Square

Our first year to celebrate Fiesta, we celebrated at the Fiesta de los Reyes at Market Square. This is one of the largest free Fiesta celebrations that includes a variety of live entertainment and music and over 30 food booths. 
I think what we love the most about Fiesta de los Reyes is the cultural that is all brought together in one place. The bright colors, the smell of fresh food, especially the Mexican food that is being cooked right in front of your eyes, including fresh tortillas. 
During our time at the Fiesta de los Reyes we take the time, as we do with all of our visits at Market Square, and grab a sweet from Mi Tierra Restaurant and Bakery
Fiesta de los Reyes at Market Square has live entertainment, from dancing to music. What is great is that all types of entertainment is happening at once so you have a choice as to which type you want to be entertained by. There is a stage inside of the Market that might have a team of dancers or a young girl singing her favorite Selena songs or you can go to either end of the Market and see what other types of entertainment is going on. You may even spot ‘Mexican’ Elvis standing like a statue, taking pictures with fans, or dancing.
This Fiesta event is open from 10am to 1am. We have only gone during daylight hours because we have kids, but I am sure that after the sun goes down the party really gets started. So grab your brightest outfit, toss on your flower hat or your fanciest Fiesta hat, and ‘Show Us Your Shoes’.

  1. Looks like ya’ll had fun!

  2. I wish SA was just around the corner and not 90 minutes from us. This is something our little guy would love!

    • Girl, SA is not that far from you 😉 You just gotta get out of Austin Hell and then BAM… There is so much to do here you need to make that drive… heck get a hotel for the night and make it a vaca 😉

  3. How fun! We’ve been wanting to visit San Antonio but just haven’t made the time. Love the flowers and other beautiful colors at the festival.

    • Oh wow, there is too much to do in SA! The drive is worth it and if you come around the time of an event, it will really be fun.. so many activities here.

  4. Haven’t been to this event yet but it looks like fun for the whole family. And no admission too!

    I would be in Heaven. I love Mexican food. Your pictures are beautiful! Favorite Mex food has to be fajitas. We have a little “hole in the wall place” in my hometown that if you looked at it, you would think it’s a run down building. But it is authentic (not Americanized) and so good.

  7. Looks fun!! I bet the food is AMAZING!!!
