Paseo por El Westside

Celebrate the Westside of San Antonio’s history, culture and people with the Paseo por El Westside on Saturday, April 7 at the Rinconcito de Esperanza (816 S. Colorado).

This event is intergenerational at the core with activities for all ages. The event will include fotobanner tours through the Westside, workshops, demos, food, and live music.

The community will also get a chance to visit the newest building on the Rinconcito property, which is an adobe (compressed earth block) building that is used as a studio for MujerArtes, our women’s clay cooperative. In the summer of 2016, the women of MujerArtes learned how to create the compressed earth blocks and helped build the building; they were instrumental in the design process.

Admission is free and the event is open to the public as well as family friendly. The whole family is invited whether they were born and raised in the Westside or simply enjoy cultural festivities honoring San Antonio’s heritage!
