The Alamo welcomes you to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with Tejanos at the Alamo Day.

Taking place on Saturday, September 23, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the event will feature local cultural organizations, descendant groups, living historians and more throughout the Alamo grounds. Standout highlights are the captivating performances by Ballet Folklorico, scheduled at 9:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 3 p.m., set against the backdrop of the iconic Alamo Church.

From early San Antonio settlers to 1836 Alamo Defenders and other notable figures such as Juan Seguin and Adina De Zavala, Tejanos at the Alamo will highlight the many important Tejano figures who have made an indelible impact on the Alamo and the larger San Antonio community.

Hispanic Heritage Month, observed from September 15 to October 15 each year in the United States, encompasses the independence anniversaries of seven Latin American countries, including Mexico.

This family-friendly event is free and open to the public. Additionally, a food truck from popular local restaurant La Gloria will be on site from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. selling breakfast and lunch to guests.
