Viva Fiesta! A Celebration of Lifelong Learning

About San Antonio

San Antonio, in South Texas, is a vibrant city with a rich cultural heritage.  Just before the ACHE South conference San Antonio will be ending a 10-day festival called Fiesta.  The over 100 official events over 10 days are held by non-profit organizations and raise money to support a variety of community causes. 

On Saturday, April 16th, there is a unique night parade through downtown lit by torches called Fiesta Flambeau. Hundreds of thousands of people attend so plan your arrival time accordingly.  The parade route blocks access to the hotel for several hours on Saturday evening.  We have a great hotel rate for the Friday and Saturday before the conference so attendees can plan a mini-vacation with family and attend Fiesta.  Book early to guarantee a room!

San Antonio is home to the beautiful and famous River Walk several military installations, historic Spanish missions, museums, an extensive medical complex and several universities.  For you NBA fans, we are home to the San Antonio Spurs.  Currently the Spurs are having a fabulous season so expect to see the excitement at an all-time high as the regular season ends and the playoffs start.

You will enjoy your time in San Antonio and, as you hear during April each year, VIVA Fiesta!
