What is Culture Fest?

St. Philip's College has hosted the Culture Fest since 1995. The Culture Fest, an official Fiesta San Antonio event, celebrates the cultural influences of St. Philip's College as one of San Antonio's most historically distinguished and ethnically diverse institutions of higher learning.

The Culture Fest and Rib Cook-Off has become a tradition on our campus. Every year, on the Thursday before the Battle of Flowers Parade, we welcome one and all to celebrate with us. Admission is free and open to the public.
