Ford Mariachi Festival

ADDRESS: San Antonio River Walk, downtown area

April 5 – 7, 2022
Time: 6:00PM – 8:00PM

River Walk Ford Mariachi Festival, Est. 1970
This FREE, official Fiesta event features Mariachi bands and Folklorico dancers from local schools along the San Antonio River Walk.

This three-day event is the perfect time to sit outside, sip a margarita (as if you needed an excuse), and enjoy the music and dancing as these talented groups float by. The tradition began in 1972 and is still going strong! Boats carrying performers will randomly stop. Each group wears the traditional Mariachi and Folklorico costume.
