The San Antonio Parks Foundation is proud to announce details for the nonprofit’s 4th Annual Chaparral Music & Heritage Festival celebrating the music, flavors, and history of South and Central Texas in downtown San Antonio!
On the first Saturday of Fiesta!, Texas country and americana music fans revel in all things Texas for the fourth year in a row, and the second year at Hemisfair, the festival’s home footprint. After a red-hot June date in 2021, the San Antonio Parks Foundation is incredibly excited to welcome fans to Chaparral on April 2 for the sounds of Lone Star music icon, Gary P. Nunn; Tex-flex flavored trio, The Last Bandoleros; infectious cosmic cowgirl, Kaitlin Butts; honkytonk soul siren, Madelyn Victoria; the United States Air Force Band of the West woodwind quintet, Nightwatch; AND one more secret artist to be announced in early March.
Produced by the San Antonio Parks Foundation, Chaparral Music & Heritage is deeply rooted in the belief systems and practices to protect, grow, nourish, and perpetuate, an ecosystem of learning, camaraderie, celebration, and legacy that public parks provide to citizens and visitors as places to create and perpetuate their own storytelling for the now and future of San Antonio.
A small team that reaches all San Antonians through free public programming in San Antonio and Bexar County parks, SAPF is thrilled to build a partnership with John T. Floore Country Store as the exclusive talent buyer for the Chaparral Music & Heritage Festival.
While General Admission to the festival is free and open to the public, a limited number of VIP Culinary Experience tickets are available to 21+ patrons who wish to elevate their Chaparral experience. Under the shade of Texas oak trees, ticketed VIP guests will enjoy an on-site culinary experience curated by Don Strange of Texas. The menu features traditional Texas cuisines reimagined using resilient and sustainable agriculture practices and local food producers. In addition to complimentary food, VIP guests will enjoy complimentary beer, wine, and specialty cocktails, private seating, and air-conditioned restrooms for the duration of the evening, 5 PM to 11 PM. Foodservice begins at 6 PM.
General Admission access is free, all-ages, and includes access to the Fiesta Food Halle, Biergarten, and artisan vendor market.
