Robert Earl Keen has written the soundtrack to many Texans' lives, so relive your best memories with the man who helped create them. Whether that's singing along to "The Road Goes On Forever" or "The Front Porch Song," Keen has you covered.
Sep 11
Do your duty as a Texan and sing along with Pee-wee to "Deep In The Heart Of Texas." If you need some liquid courage, Alamo will be stirring Tequila Sunrises just for the occasion.
Beer Festival


Oct 1
The Heathens have played together for 10 years, and their consistent hard work has paid off with excellent records and better live performances. Don't miss one of Texas' best live acts as they come through our city.
Friday - Saturday
Oct 7-15
Our friends at Beethoven Maennerchor, one of the most historically significant nonprofits in our city, puts on one hell of an Oktoberfest. Come for the German beers on draft and stay for the history.

Multiple locations
It's awful when you realize the impossibility of tasting all 300 beers at the fest -- but, it would be straight-up depressing if San Antonio Beer Festival didn't exist. How else would we be introduced to all these pilsners, stouts, porters, wheats, musicians, and food trucks?
Oct 29
If Pop can take pictures with Cam'ron, we can give Laker legend Pau Gasol an old-fashioned San Antonio welcome. If Kawhi, Tony, and Lamarcus can stay healthy, this might be our year. Catch the crew before tickets cost too much.

Friday - Sunday
Nov 4-13
Take a ride on the Wurstwagen, get yourself a pilsner, a sausage, and some sauerkraut, and support New Braunfels' economy at the same time. Go have the Wurst day ever.
Nov 5
When live music, cold drinks, and over 80 food vendors are confirmed, music fests should be a no-brainer. But when they benefit the energy of the future, they should be mandatory.
Wednesday - Sunday
Nov 9-13
East Downtown
Almost all of Dignowity Hill will be covered in art by mid-November. Murals, light shows, paintings, performance -- whatever it is, Luminaria has it. The night festival will take place on Nov 9th and 10th. Best of all? It's free.

Yes, Ozzy peed on the Alamo that one time, but Black Sabbath made it up to us by picking San Antonio as their last US city to ever play a show in… so get over it. Send the metal legends off with a warm SA farewell.
Nov 25
River Walk
It's not Christmas season until you watch this beautifully lit SA tradition float down the River Walk. Thirty-one floats will participate this year, and the theme is tinsel and merriment -- so dress accordingly...
