What is Culture Fest?
St. Philip's College has hosted the Culture Fest since 1995. The Culture Fest, an official Fiesta San Antonio event, celebrates the cultural influences of St. Philip's College as one of San Antonio's most historically distinguished and ethnically diverse institutions of higher learning.
The Culture Fest and Rib Cook-Off has become a tradition on our campus. Every year, on the Thursday before the Battle of Flowers Parade, we welcome one and all to celebrate with us. Admission is free and open to the public.
More About Culture Fest!
The Rib Cook-Off was added to the Culture Fest in 2002 and features some of the best BBQ teams San Antonio has to offer.
The Culture Fest offers a variety of food booths with taste-tempting, traditional Fiesta fare such as shrimp and chicken kabobs, turkey legs, corn on the cob, funnels cakes, puffy tacos, fajitas, snow cones, sausages and chalupas. Culture Fest features live music acts and entertainment, games, craft booths, and a barbecue rib cook-off.
