The 95th Annual Patriotic and Historical Ball is one of the
opening galas of opening Fiesta® 2014. The event, recalling early Texas
traditional pioneer dances, leads off with everyone participating in the Grand
March. The first Patriotic and Historical Ball took place in 1919 to honor San
Antonio’s military personnel, and the event has continued since that time. Military personnel from local installations
and organizations are special guests that evening.
The State Association of Texas Pioneers sponsors the ball to
continue the social purposes for which the organization was founded in 1919
while fund raising for educational programs and to support the exhibition of
the museum collection. The State Association of Texas Pioneers exists is to
keep Texas history alive, perpetuate Texas traditions and cultivate friendly
relations between the Pioneers of Texas and their descendants; and also to
establish and maintain landmarks, memorial halls and museums. Meeting for
educational programs and social events take place throughout the year.
