Ford Mariachi Festival

Thank you for a fantastic event - see you next year! 

This FREE event is an official event of Fiesta San Antonio. Enjoy and experience an evening of mariachi bands and Folklorico dancers from local schools as they perform for you along the San Antonio River Walk.

The tradition began in 1972 and is still going strong! Boats carrying performers stop periodically along the downtown portion of the River Walk. Each group wears the traditional Mariachi and Folklorico costumes.

This three-day event is the perfect time to sit outside, sip a cool beverage, and enjoy the music and dancing as these talented groups float by.

Plus! Catch Performances at Rivercenter Mall Stage
