San Jacinto Day Festival and Battle Re-enactment

The largest battle re-enactment in the southwest is the centerpiece of this admission-free festival, held on the grounds surrounding the San Jacinto Monument. The festival is a full day of entertainment with 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 more than 180 years ago. Festival, park grounds, re-enactment, parking, entrance to San Jacinto Monument, and shuttles are free; there are modest admission fees for the elevator ride, movie, and special exhibit inside the Monument. Organizers recommend guests come early and follow directions from TPWD and other parking staff. There will be no drones or hoverboards allowed on park/festival grounds.
