Largest cultural festival in Texas kicks off downtown

This 47th Annual Texas Folklife Festival features new shows you'll have to see and new foods you'll have to try.

This weekend, thousands will flood the UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures for the 47th annual Texas Folklife Festival.

The three-day festival kicked off on Friday with a variety of authentic food, live music, art, and dancing.

"I've been coming every year since she was born," said Annette Guajardo, who was in line grabbing a beef shish kabob with her 9-year-old daughter.

Guajardo added that for those who are first-timers, they have to stop by as many food booths as possible.

"I would definitely have them try the beef shish kabob and the buffalo burger," Guarjardo noted.

You can find dozens of music and dance groups performing across six stages and vendors are stationed both inside and outside of the institute.

VIA will be offering their park and ride service Saturday and Sunday from the park and ride next to Crossroads Mall.

It costs $2.50 for entry but there are discounts for children, seniors, students, and active-duty military.
