San Jacinto Events Cancelled


Houston, TX    The COVID-19 situation is ever-changing and having dramatic effects on our surrounding areas. 

The San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site and the San Jacinto Museum of History are taking this matter seriously: the health and safety of our community is our number one priority.


Here are our responses regarding public health and safety:

The San Jacinto Day Festival takes place each April and has seven to ten thousand attending. Many of those festival-goers are from outside the Houston area and surrounding states.  In an effort to contain the spread of COVID-19 this event has been cancelled.  Rescheduling of the event has not been determined at this time.  Vendors are advised to contact the event coordination team for more information.

The San Jacinto School Day to take place on April 17 where more than 1,000 students from around the Houston area would learn about Texas Independence has been cancelled.  Rescheduling of the event has not been determined at this time.

The Official State of Texas Ceremony Commemorating the 184th Anniversary of the Battle of San Jacinto to take place on Tuesday, April 21, has been cancelled.

The San Jacinto Day Dinner scheduled for April 21 has been rescheduled to September 22nd.   See our website for updated details.

The San Jacinto Museum of History will remain open to the public.  Extra care is in place to clean frequently touched surfaces and objects. Hand sanitizers are available throughout the museum. 


We will continue to monitor the situation and make appropriate changes to this schedule should that required.  Please check our website for updates.
