San Antonio, Texas 78205

Attire: Formal

The 102st Patriotic and Historical Ball is one of the opening galas of Fiesta® 2023. The first Patriotic and Historical Ball took place in 1919 to honor San Antonio’s military personnel, and the event has continued since that time. 

The evening begins with patriotic ceremonies, followed by the introduction of the Pioneers’ own Fiesta royalty, the Honorary Lady Chairman 2023-2024, Cathy DeVries. A highlight of the evening is a visit from King Antonio of the Texas Cavaliers, his first duty as king.

We are excited about the ball’s new location in San Fernando Ballroom, 231 West Commerce.  A cash bar will be available while you have the opportunity to bid on unique silent auction items.

Dance the night away and viva Fiesta!
