Free Parking  


Join thousands of proud Texans celebrating victory at San Jacinto and Texas Independence.  This is a family-friendly Texas-size event with music, demonstrations, food trucks and lots of history.  Volunteers dressed in the period of the Texas Revolution make the events of April 1836 come alive. 

Throughout the day there will be historical interpreters and demonstrations that are sure to thrill adults and children alike.  Talk with reenactors who will share the true tales of the day. 

A “Timeline of the Texas Revolution”, starting at the monument, facilitates a chronological progression of the San Jacinto Story. The major Texas Revolution events will be represented through demonstrations and representatives from Gonzales, the Alamo, San Felipe de Austin, Goliad, and Washington-on-the-Brazos, culminating in the Battle of San Jacinto and capture of General Santa Anna. 

Reenactors engaging in demonstrations and routine activities (cooking food, checking weapons, etc.) create a more immersive sensory experience, engaging with visitors’ sense of sight, smell and sound and allows visitor interaction with reenactors on their own terms. 

Visit the museum inside the monument.  Admission to the museum is free with event ticket.  

Please note, the festival will take place rain or shine.  No ticket refunds.
