VFW Post 76 on the Riverwalk
10 10th Street, San Antonio, Texas 78215
Make our festival your family event for Fiesta 2018! Thanks to the Museum Reach improvements on the San Antonio River, the 10th Street River Festival has truly lived up to its name. Enjoy Fiesta on the beautiful, historic grounds of the VFW Post 76. The 19th Century mansion is located on 10th Street and B Avenue, and is a place for great fun, food, cold drinks and entertainment that exemplifies the cultural diversity of San Antonio.
With live music being the focus, musical groups will entertain Fiesta revelers with the sounds of Tejano, Oldies, Blues, and Country Western. VFW Post 76 is the oldest functioning VFW in Texas and proceeds from this event support maintenance of the century old building, renovation projects, veteran programs, and scholarships for local high school students.
VFW Post 76 is “The Oldest Post in Texas.” The home was built in the late 1800’s with Corinthian style columns being the premiere aesthetic of the Victorian period home. The home features a wrap-around veranda, full-sized basement and attic, and at one time had 17 rooms, five fireplaces, and two kitchens. The original stained glass windows of the house are testament to the true artisan work that has lasted for more than 100 years.
Admission is free.
