Few cities around the world have celebrations that last weeks. The festivities are exciting, vibrant and reflect the home city’s culture. The attendees are from all walks of life and the food is always an experience worth delving into. That’s what San Antonio has in Fiesta.
Two events that have been on our radar are the King William Fair and Fiesta Fiesta held in Alamo Plaza.
The King William Fair is a fundraiser to preserve and protect the oldest historic district in the state of Texas. It promotes the unique cultural heritage of our city by displaying artwork, entertainment and food.

We have a tradition at Sweb: Every Friday, we all take a break from the awesome web, mobile, and social work we do, and the entire team sits down to eat lunch together. Our absolute favorite spot is El Tacomiendo, the taco truck-in-residence at Artpace.
We still haven’t figured out what’s more enticing - the owner, Alma’s warm, friendly customer service, or her husband’s incredible food. From al pastor (which, according to our resident taco expert, Tirso, is the best in San Antonio) to carne guisada, we’ve loved every bite! Our mouths are watering just thinking about it.
Stop by, and tell Alma Sweb sent you: Fridays at Artpace. 12-2
