San Jacinto Celebration

Living history re-enactors representing Mexican artillerymen firing a replica cannon.


THIS APRIL, the San Jacinto Battleground will once again hear the booming of cannons, the cracking of musket fire, and the shouts of “Remember the Alamo!”

On Saturday, April 20, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. the 2024 San Jacinto Day Celebration, presented by the San Jacinto Museum and Battlefield Association and the San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site, will be a day of fun, reenactments, and living history activities celebrating the 188th anniversary of the Battle of San Jacinto. Reenactors dressed in period clothing will make the epic events of April 1836 come alive, and reenactments throughout the day will recreate the dramatic events that led to one of the most decisive and impactful military victories in the history of North America.  

Battle of San Jacinto Reenactment

The Battle of San Jacinto and the surrender of General Santa Anna will come to life during the battle reenactment. The reenactment will be held twice during the day, at 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.

The Road to San Jacinto

The Battle of San Jacinto didn’t happen in a vacuum. It was the final chapter to six months of fighting and debate about the future of Texas. Representatives from the other major Texas Revolution sites will be on hand to share their parts in the story that ended with the Battle of San Jacinto.

Living History

Step back in time to revolutionary Texas! Hands-on, participatory activities will let you interact with reenactors as they cook food, check weapons, and engage in the daily routines of soldiers and civilians from almost 200 years ago.
