About 41st Annual Texas Folklife Festival
In 1968, a Texan delegate named O.T. Baker traveled to Washington, D.C., for the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, a spirited celebration of folk traditions from across the globe. Upon his return to San Antonio, he decided he had to recreate the multicultural magic in his own great state. Fortuitously built as part of the 1968 World’s Fair, the Institute of Texan Cultures hosted the first annual Texas Folklife Festival in 1972 in HemisFair Park. More than 40 years later, the festival is still going strong, celebrating an ever-expanding roster of dozens of distinct cultures and traditions through cuisine, crafts, and live performances. The latter range across multiple stages and through the crowds with acts from storytelling and music to traditional dances and traditional complaints that every other culture's mom serves better snacks.
