Join the fun in May when the
Conjunto Festival returns to roots with Latino legends in Rosedale Park in
San Antonio, TX. Each year the festival features great musicians like
accordion greats Paulino Bernal and Oscar Hernandez. Guests can expect a
“who’s who” of Texas and Latin legends to perform during the festivities.
Previous events included a Conjunto student recital from three of San Antonio’s community and education-based organizations: the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center; Conjunto Heritage Taller, a community group that teaches accordion and bajo sexto; and Palo Alto College, home of the nation’s only college-level Conjunto music program.
This celebration of music and culture has become a major annual event in the Alamo City and draws visitors from across the country, Mexico and overseas. In addition to showcasing this unique music form, the festival also includes a wide variety of family-friendly activities, along with food booths and more. A three-day "Festival Pass" is available for members of the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center, and non-members pay a separate fee. Tickets and passes can be purchased in advance by credit card and purchased for cash at the gate during the event.
