Play Local: Creative and Culinary Picks for This Weekend

Can't decide what to do this Memorial Day weekend? Don't worry, we’ve scoured the internets and gathered our favorite picks to get the most out of your three-day weekend:

Friday, May 25


Piñatapalooza is a family friendly interactive piñata art show held at beautiful Travis Park and sponsored by the Henry Ford Academy. This event is branded as the only art show in town where you can see the art, buy the art, and SMASH the art! This is a free event that will include piñata raffles of all displayed piñatas, live piñata smashing, on-site printmaking, mariachi performances, Folklorico dance performances, food trucks, and more. The show will be followed by a free movie screening of favorite luchador 'Nacho Libre.'

 $Free; 6pm-8:30pm; Travis Park, 301 E Travis St., San Antonio, TX 


Saturday May 26

Memorial Day Artisan Show

When's the last time you were a tourist in your own city? Resist the urge to stay in your bubble and head down to the Riverwalk while perusing handmade pottery, textiles, jewelry, woodwork, paintings and more! This event lasts through Monday, and since you're downtown anyway be sure to visit the OPEN Pop Up Shops on Houston St. and support some of our favorite girl bosses, Socorro Society and Her Hippie Heart.

$Free; 11am-10pm; 849 E Commerce, San Antonio, TX 78205

Return of the Mac-rame Workshop

Obviously, we couldn’t leave this one out. Registration closes tonight (Thursday, May 24, 2018), but you still have time to get in on this macrame plant hanger workshop at Feliz Modern. We provide everything, including patterns and basic knot tutorials to get you started on your newest obsession.

$45; 1pm-3pm; Feliz Modern, 110 W Olmos, San Antonio, TX 78212



Sunday, May 27

Taco Truck Throwdown

I've never met a taco I didn't like, so you can definitely find me here on Sunday. With over 25 taco truck competitors, $1 al pastor tacos, and the oldest VFW post in the city (a total San Antonio bucket list locale), you can't go wrong with this event. Did we mention free live music all day? Well we just did. 

$Free to attend; 12pm-8pm; VFW Post 76, Avenue B and 10th St., San Antonio, TX

Feliz Kid's Day

If you didn't get enough Feliz Modern with us on Saturday (can you really ever have enough Feliz?), you are in luck because we are giving you an excuse to go back! Head down to Feliz Modern this Sunday for kid's cuts by the HeadQuarters Salon trailer, new summer digs from Roo & Me and $1 paletas for a cause benefitting SA Reads. 

$Free to attend, 10am-4pm; Feliz Modern, 110 W Olmos, San Antonio, TX 78212
