You can't really call yourself a San Antonian if you don't love avocados! Just kidding, but avocados really are a huge ingredient used in many Tex-Mex dishes from local San Antonio restaurants that it is clear why the city would host its own avocado festival. The first-ever San Antonio Avocado Fest is coming on May 4th, and you will not want to miss it.
Prepare yourself for over 15 different local favorite restaurants and vendors who will be serving up their best dishes that will all feature the heavenly green fruit. You can taste all kinds of foods from the freshest guacamole to cheesy avocado quesadillas to melts, nachos, and more. There will even be avocado desserts to top off your afternoon of delicious indulging!
Some of the featured vendors include CRAVE, Smackerel San Antonio, Kurbside Kafe of TX, Gina’s Pacific Coast Kitchen, Dona Kika's Tacos & Gorditas and many more that are yet to be announced. For the tastiest afternoon of your life, you know where to go!
There will also be a market at the event set up with tons of local crafters, bakeries, boutiques, and gift shops that will all be selling their local goods along with tons of avocado-themed goods and treats. Stop by for a delicious avocado treat for your pup or some I Heart Avocado merch!

Session two is $25 and gets you access from 3:30 PM to 5:30 PM and 7 free avocado dish tickets. Both come with a free beer ticket and a voting chip so you can vote on your favorite vendor!
