Luminaria Takes Place This Weekend in San Antonio

By  | 

This Friday and Saturday (November 10 and 11) mark the 10th year anniversary of the Luminaria Contemporary Arts Festival in San Antonio, Texas. According to KENS 5, the festival will showcase work from local artists of all kinds – dancers, poets, studio artists, musicians, and actors. “Since March 2008, San Antonio artists have created new theatrical and dance performances, film screenings, light projections, creative demonstrations, live music ranging from garage bands to orchestras, and other challenging new site-specific experiences. And each year, Luminaria has grown,” the festival’s website reads.

The Luminaria Contemporary Arts Festival is free and open to the public who are encouraged to walk around and take in the sights and sounds of 48 showcasing artists and groups while grabbing something to eat and drink from pop-ups throughout Hemisfair Park. The listing of events can be seen on the Luminaria website here. The festivities take place from 7:00 p.m. to midnight on Friday, and continue the next day in Southtown from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Then, there’s a closing party back at Hemisfair (though that is a paid event for $55) and a brunch with artists (for $35).

Artists will not be selling any work at the festival, but San Antonio residents are encouraged to come out and find their next favorite artist by connecting with them at the event!
