San Jacinto Museum of History presents San Jacinto Day Festival & Battle Reenactment
The largest battle reenactment in the Southwest is the centerpiece of the San Jacinto Day Festival. The festival is a full day of entertainment from three stages, rides, vendors, food, family activities, animals, cultural exhibitors, children’s games and fun set amidst living history, paying tribute to the decisive Battle of San Jacinto on April 21, 1836, where Texas won its independence from Mexico 183 years ago.
Festival, park grounds, reenactment, and entrance to San Jacinto Monument are free. There are modest admission fees for parking, the elevator ride, movie and special exhibit inside the Monument. Organizers recommend guests come early and follow directions from TPWD and other parking staff.
