For a third of San Antonio’s history, the Oyster Bake has been part of the fabric of the community. What started as a St. Mary’s University alumni gathering with a handful of people in 1916 on the banks of the San Antonio river downtown has grown to a premier Fiesta San Antonio event with over 70,000 patrons and more than 7,000 volunteers.
The Oyster Bake truly is a party with a purpose. 100% of the proceeds raised during the Oyster Bake goes directly back to the students of St. Mary’s University.

Are you brand new to Fiesta? If you've arrived in San Antonio in the past three years, you may never have been here during a "normal" Fiesta event. The last time it was held in its traditional timeframe was April 2019, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
