Saturday, November 10, 2018 from 7 PM to Midnight in Hemisfair

 

Saturday night was the main event!

Luminaria hosted its FREE, epic, after-dark Contemporary Arts Festival in downtown San Antonio, Texas.

50+ artists of all disciplines showcased their works in performance, music, literature, dance, visual arts and more. Featured Artists presented special Tricentennial artworks and performances that explored the identity, history, people, land and culture of San Antonio.
