10am – 2pm

This fun-filled outdoor festival of all things native to San Antonio~from peoples to plants~is a great place to bring the whole family to experience the natural and cultural history of San Antonio and South Texas. American Indians in Texas, and San Antonio Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas invites you to this fun-filled, community educational and recreational event.

Our last Native San Antonio drew about 250 participants, including students and extended families, who participated in hayrides, longhorn viewing, hands-on activities for children, a native tree giveaway, a native plant sale, interpretative nature walks, and interactive discussions on native medicinal plants and local ecology. They enjoyed exhibits on Native American hot rock cooking, South Texas birds, solar cooking, a historic chuck wagon, etc. and information tables of non-profit and governmental organizations. Native American vendors and artists lined the walk areas with unique, handmade treasures. Entertainment from the American Indians in Texas Dance Theater and the Conjunto Heritage Taller further added to the festive atmosphere.

Make sure to invite friends and family!
