In less than a month, Fiesta is set to make its triumphant spring return to San Antonio for the first time since 2019.
The coronavirus pandemic has halted plans for Fiesta in 2020 and dates have been pushed back to 2021 in the summer, with several major event cancellations including the Fiesta Flambeau and Battle of Flowers parades.
But this year, the 11 Day Party with a Purpose is back with a bang, and KSAT 12 has full coverage planned for Fiesta fans.
Fiesta is San Antonio’s largest annual event and generates over $340 million in economic impact for the community while giving more than 100 nonprofit organizations the opportunity to raise funds through a multitude of events .

The parades will start on Main Street near San Antonio College and head south towards Crockett Park, where there will be bleachers.
The parade will branch off into Lexington near Madison Square Park and turn left onto St. Mary’s Street before heading right into Brooklyn, where there will be additional seating in the stands.
The route will continue to Avenue E and turn quickly right onto Houston Street, then quickly left onto Alamo Plaza before turning right onto Commerce Street where the parade will end.
Texas Cavaliers River Parade
This year, the Texas Cavaliers River Parade will mark the 77th year of the annual Fiesta event.
Tickets are on sale from $18 to $28 along the route and all proceeds benefit over 70 children’s charities each year.
The Battle of Flowers Parade is considered the founding event of Fiesta San Antonio. The parade has traveled the streets of San Antonio every year since 1891, except during World Wars I and II and in 2020 and 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Battle of Flowers is also the oldest parade in the country produced entirely by women, according to Fiesta San Antonio.
Seating tickets can be purchased for $16.50 to $35 at BattleOfFlowers.org. Profits are donated to local charities.
The Fiesta Flambeau, which began in 1948, is considered the largest illuminated night parade in the United States.
This year’s theme is “Celebrating Literary Classics” and grandstand seating tickets will be available for $20-$35.
