E-mail Print PDF

As Fiesta 2001 rolls into its four day, the ever popular NIOSA (Night In Old San Antonio) is about to take off.

While there are always several major festivals around town, NIOSA always stand apart for their massive expanse – lots of stages, tons of food and big loads of entertainment and cultural variety.

The official 2011 NIOSA lineup of entertainers will showcase familiar names

 such as the Mo-Dels, the Cones Sisters and Small World. 

Scheduled Tuesday-Friday, April 12-15, NIOSA features more than a dozen acts from almost every major musical genre, reflecting the diversity of music in the area.

The four-night event spread over five acres celebrates San Antonio’s diverse cultural heritage through food, music, games, decorations and dance for more than 80,000 revelers.

Through the magic of more than 250 food, drink and atmosphere booths, more than 18 live musical acts, decorations, costumed volunteers, collectibles, party goers and cascarones, NIOSA brings
the city’s heritage alive in 15 areas (Arneson Theatre, Chinatown, Clown Alley, French Quarter, Froggy Bottom, Frontier Town, Haymarket, International Walkway, Irish Flat, Main Street USA, Mexican Market, Mission Trail, Sauerkraut Bend, South of the Border and Villa España). It is held on the grounds of the La Villita National Historic District–the 18th century Spanish neighborhood set on the banks of the San Antonio River in the heart of downtown San Antonio.

NIOSA 2011 will start with a short opening parade at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, which winds throughout La Villita, and includes many state and national civic leaders, as well as members of Fiesta royalty such as Rey Feo and King Antonio.
