Fiesta San Antonio - NIOSA

San Antonio’s La Villita Village hosts this most loved part of Fiesta San Antonio. The Tuesday - Friday of Fiesta is known as Night in Old San Antonio, NIOSA. It is a multi-cultural event that is one of the best parties in the US.

The historic district of La Villita, near the River Walk, divides itself into 15 different cultural areas. Each area serves food, dresses up and plays the music specific to the culture. On these 4 most magical nights the streets are hung with soft lights, music fills the air, booze flows freely and NIOSA kisses are spread far and wide.
