PACfest at Palo Alto College is an official Fiesta® San Antonio event, the largest south of Highway 90, held the Thursday before Fiesta’s Battle of Flowers Parade. This family-friendly event features a main stage with artistic and musical performers throughout the day, food booths, children’s activities, Social Media Alley, and more! Bring your lawn chairs and blankets; this year will be a blast! 

PACfest is a significant fundraising opportunity for PAC student organizations and clubs. Of all the food and novelty vendors at PACfest offering Fiesta favorites like chicken on a stick, turkey legs, and corn in a cup, most are student organizations raising money to support their club events and community initiatives held throughout the academic year.

About PACfest

PACfest became an official Fiesta® San Antonio event in 2003, but it has been going on long before. Palo Alto College held the first event in the early 1990s. Through the years, PACfest has steadily grown into a popular Fiesta destination. Its location in the south San Antonio area places Palo Alto College in the center of activity for years to come. 

The #1 student organization fundraiser on campus
Student clubs and organizations run various vendor booths, and the funds raised enable them to give back to fellow students and the local community throughout the year.
