San Antonio Is Hosting A Giant Asian Festival This Winter

While it may only be November, many of us are already looking forward to 2020, "The Year of the Rat." San Antonio is celebrating the new year with UTSA's annual Asian Festival, a fest that will include authentic foods, music, dance, and more. We have a lot to look forward to this coming year, and the 2020 Asian Festival in San Antonio is at the very top of our lists. 

On Saturday, February 1 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures is being transformed to celebrate the cultures of Asia.

Asia consists of many parts of the world, from China, to the Indian Sub-continent, and the island nations of the Pacific. Living in the U.S. it's hard to find the time to travel to any of these areas, that's why we're so lucky they're coming to us

Not only will authentic foods, music and dance be at the fest, but martial arts, shopping, games and other entertainment will also be making an appearance.

Two massive stages will take up a good chunk of the UTSA grounds, but they'll have performances that you can't see anywhere else! Aside from in Asia, of course.

Tickets are $12 for adults (13+) when purchased in advance, and $15 at the gate. If you're bringing kids along, tickets for them (6-12) are $5 and anyone under the age of six is free. 

The fest is several months away, and while it might be hard to wait that long, at least we already have an awesome event to look forward to!

Texas is going to be filled with incredible things to do in every season of the year, the Asian Festival is just the beginning of 2020's epic adventures.
