418 Villita St San Antonio, TX 78205 (210) 207-8614
Located at 418 Villita Street on the south bank of the San Antonio River, http://goo.gl/maps/UdlnW La Villita was one of San Antonio’s first neighborhoods. It was originally a settlement of primitive huts for the Spanish soldiers stationed at the Mission San Antonio Valero (the Alamo). After a flood in 1819, brick, stone and adobe houses replaced the earlier structures. In 1836, La Villita was the site of General Santa Ana’s cannon line in the Battle of the Alamo and a map from early that year showed the village to be of considerable size. Late in the 19th century European immigrants from Germany and France moved into the area. These pioneers became San Antonio’s business leaders, bankers, educators, and craftsmen. The cultural mix that occurred at this time is best illustrated by the variety of architectural styles reflected in La Villita’s buildings. The architecture portrays the evolution of buildings from palisado to Victorian Houses. The first part of the 20th century saw La Villita decline into a slum area. In 1939, as ground broke on the San Antonio River Walk development, city fathers led by Mayor Maury Maverick acted to preserve this colorful part of San Antonio’s history. Today La Villita is a thriving art community that stands as a monument to San Antonio’s past.
La Villita has five interconnected plazas for outdoor gatherings such as wedding receptions, birthday parties, retirement celebrations and much more. Number of guests: Plaza Nacional 150-300; Maverick Plaza 1,200 - 2,500; Plaza Juarez 300 - 500; Cos House and patio 100 - 150. Also included in La Villita is the world-famous Arneson River Theatre where Fiesta Noche del Rio performs as well as many other concert performances, ballet, plays and wedding ceremonies.
La Villita Historic Arts Village is owned by the City of San Antonio and managed by the Department for Culture and Creative Development.

The Mexican Cultural Institute at San Antonio , Texas, is the Permanent Cultural Representation of the Mexican Government in this city. This Institute has been linked since its beginnings to the cultural life of San Antonio, and so, one of our main tasks is to ensure the growth and strengthening of such link by promoting a direct and active participation of the community.
The creation of the Mexican Cultural Institute is the product of a great effort by the Mexican Government that began in 1958 with the foundation of the “Gallery of Mexican Art” at the General Mexican Consulate of San Antonio, Texas. In 1968 the Instituto Cultural de Mexico displayed a large amount of examples of Mexican art at the “Hemisfair 1968”; and in 1972 the Mayor of the city of San Antonio presented the Mexican President with the current facilities of the Instituto Cultural de Mexico at San Antonio. This Institute depends directly from the General Office of Cultural Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Over its 50 years of existence at Hemisfair Park, the Instituto Cultural de Mexico has been able to maintain an important place on the cultural life of San Antonio, thanks to its wide range of events designed to show the many faces of the Mexican culture. For this purpose, the Instituto has three galleries, a multiple purpose room and an auditorium that can hold up to 250 people.

'Mana' is a Hawaiian word that translates to mean power, but the native Hawaiian concept of power doesn't equate to material possessions or what floor your office is on. Mana is a life energy that flows through all things, empowering an individual and thus the community at large. Our goal at Mana House is to create an environment conducive to creative beings finding and nurturing their inner creative power and thus reflect that back within our community.
With the history of Sunset Station behind us, the space was once used as a gunpowder house- we are transforming that energy into a present day ignition, and empowering our community through art and dialogue.
We at Mana House have worked hard at creating a strong network in the San Antonio community of professional, like-minded individuals who are looking for more opportunities to come together for social and community benefit. As we host events in this space we will give the community the opportunity to network and grow, while promoting the wonderful, creative individuals of San Antonio.
Our love of art and eye for local talent has inspired us to use the exposed brick walls and street level location of this space as a gallery open to the public. We envision day to day activity from tourists and locals, as well as exhibit receptions. We look forward to sharing ideas and helping promote our individual and collective works. We are focused on being a birth place for creativity and mutual promotion.

The Little Italy San Antonio project is to be built in Piazza DI Colombo located in front of the Christopher Columbus Italian Society and the San Francesco Di Paola Church downtown San Antonio. This two phase project was unveiled on 10-10-10 during the annual Columbus Celebrations and it's about to TAKE OFF...
Now is the time for all interested parties to come together and get involved in order to get the momentum up and running. The projected completion time frame for Phase I is 2018, Phase one is building the Commercial part of the project; shops, restaurant's, bistros and hopefully a Wine/Piano Bar.
Once this is up and running it will fund the 2nd phase which is the residential part of the project;
Il Villaggio Vecchia Italia ... (The Old Italian Village) to be built on the Society's property in the back of the Hall right behind the Church. There will be condos with balconies, fountains and walkways that fits right in with the Mayors plan for 2020.
Just imagine, wouldn't it be lovely to get up in the morning and walk over to the piazza to get your caffè freddo and boscotti then around noon go have your pannini and a salad and a little later on have your meatballs and cannoli and end the day with a couple glasses of wine while enjoying the romantic lively secure compound right in the center of town.
Now is the time to plant...I refer to the old Italian proverb...
"All the flowers of tomorrow are in the seeds of yesterday."

General Admission(ENTRY AT 1:30PM) Includes:
-Entrance into San Antonio Beer Festival
-Beer Sample Card for use between 1:30pm-6:30pm
With the purchase of your San Antonio Beer Festival ticket, you will receive a sampling card redeemable for (12) 2 ounce beers. Why? The state of Texas and the Texas Alcohol and Beverage Commission does not allow “unlimited tasting” events. The maximum amount of beer Texas allows to be sold at any one time is 24 ounces. We don’t like the 24 ounce limitation at a beer festival as much as you don’t, which is why we’re pricing additional sampling cards really low. The day of the festival, you’ll be able to purchase additional sample cards for only $1! (Legally we have to charge you something.) You can also purchase full sized beers for just $4 if you choose.
Experience the beer festival that everyone has been talking about for ten years. The San Antonio Beer Festival welcomes everyone 21 and over. Feel free to bring lawn chairs or blankets and enjoy a beautiful fall day at Maverick Park.
