What is CultureFest?


St. Philip's College has hosted the CultureFest since 1995. The CultureFest, an official Fiesta San Antonio event, celebrates the rich heritage of San Antonio and cultural influences of St. Philip's College as one of San Antonio's most historically distinguished and ethnically diverse institutions of higher learning.

The CultureFest 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. Attendees are encouraged to dress and represent their culture. Admission is free and open to the public.
