“Veterans, military and all are welcome” – that’s the gist of Fiesta’s tenth Street River Festival. It is held annually at VFW Post 76, which is the oldest functioning VFW post in Texas.

The three-day event is also free and family-friendly.

The (*76*) Veterans of Foreign Wars USA is nestled along the San Antonio River near East Jones Avenue, south of I-35 in downtown. It’s a five-minute walk to the San Antonio Museum of Art. VFW Post 76 is the only subject in Texas to have a Texas historical marker located on its property.

The Tenth Street River Festival features music, dancing, food and cold drinks along San Antonio’s historic River Walk from Thursday, April 7 through Saturday, April 9. It starts every day at noon and continues until 2 am.

“The 19th century mansion is located at 10th Street and Avenue B. It is a venue for entertainment, dining, cold drinks and entertainment that exemplifies the cultural diversity of San Antonio. With live music front and center, musical groups will entertain Fiesta revelers with the sounds of Tejano, Oldies, Blues and Country Western,” reads a preview on the Fiesta website.

Free entry. Handbags and luggage will likely be checked.

VFW Post 76 aims to ensure that certain veterans, their families and survivors get help reporting service, meals, lodging and medical care.

“The public is welcome at our post. We are bike and pet friendly, however, during our Fiesta event, only service dogs will be permitted on the post grounds.
