A tribute to all who shaped our heritage



Because of the sudden and extensive rains in October, San Antonio Founders Day Festival was rescheduled for the Christmas holidays in Travis park on December 16th!  We truly appreciate San Pedro Springs Park and their efforts to help with our Founders Day festival! To all of our Exhibitors who were scheduled to join us that day, but can not join us in December, we will continue to honor your organizations on our web site.  Thank you for making our events so memorable!  A huge thank you to all of our dedicated volunteers and individuals that continue to make San Antonio Founders Day festival a very special experience!

So Join us wont you!? At the Same Festival …but NEW LOCATION, NEW DATE, and NEW TIME!

San Antonio’s Founding Heritage

Our Mission

Our Mission: To honor the more than 20 cultural groups and outstanding individuals who shaped our San Antonio heritage and to stimulate interest in reading and learning about our history and heritage in the context of the history of Texas, the nation and the world. 

San Antonio Founders DayTM is also an enduring, broad-based information and awareness effort that aims to expand our community’s knowledge and appreciation of our nearly 300-year history and heritage.  Our mission encompasses a year-round program dedicated to helping raise San Antonio’s national ranking for History, Reading, the Arts, and the multiple Cultures of this city.  The free event is always focused on the children of Texas.
The late San Antonio Historian, Frank W. Jennings, was the Founder of the annual Founders Day.  His organizational efforts drew in the many volunteers and those early efforts resulted in the celebrations you can enjoy each year. Today, non-profit San Antonio’s Founding Heritage lovingly manages the yearly cultural and historical festival.
