What Works Celebrates San Antonio’s 300 years
San Antonio’s 300-year history began in May 1718 with the founding of the San Antonio de Béxar Presidio and Mission San Antonio de Valero (now the Alamo), whose inhabitants helped lay the foundation for the eclectic art, diverse culture and stunning innovations that have become signatures of life in San Antonio. The following centuries saw the tiny collective grow to become the seventh-largest city in the country and a major contributor to the advancement of Texas arts, tourism, cuisine and technology. Today, San Antonio is a city that revels in performances, parties and its ever-colorful character. We hope you’ll join us for the dynamic events and special exhibitions of our yearlong Tricentennial celebration and help pay tribute to our past as we look excitedly toward our future.
