Paseo por El Westside – Mi Barrio No Se Vende

Saturday, May 4 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Celebrate the Westside of San Antonio’s history, culture and people with the Paseo por El Westside on Saturday, May 4th, at the Rinconcito de Esperanza (816 S. Colorado).

This event is intergenerational at the core with activities for all ages. The event will include fotobanner tours through the Westside, workshops, demos, food, and live music.

The community will also get a chance to visit the newest building on the Rinconcito property, which is an adobe (compressed earth block) building that is used as a studio for Mujer Artes Cooperativa de Esperanza Peace & Justice Center.

Admission is free and the event is open to the public as well as family friendly. The whole family is invited whether they were born and raised in the Westside or simply enjoy cultural festivities honoring San Antonio’s heritage! If you can, please bring camping or folding chairs along to setup at our seating area!

Want to donate to help us cover the costs of the festivities or volunteer to help on the day of the event? Visit our website to learn more –> esperanzacenter.org or call us at 210.228.0201.
