Exhibition - Blast from the Past: Fiesta 1969

Wednesday, Jul 24, 2019 at 10:00am

Witte Museum
3801 Broadway
San Antonio, TX 78201

It was the spring of 1969 and San Antonio’s Fiesta celebration captured the spirit of the day. Fiesta gowns from the Order of the Alamo’s Court of Time and Space will have you reaching for the stars with designs inspired by the science and technology that helped the United States put a man on the moon in July of that year. Visitors are invited to separate science fact from science fiction with fiesta gowns and costumes inspired by comic books, film and art.

From the Queen of Soul to El Rey Feo, 1969 was also a time when Fiesta royal traditions began to evolve to reflect the atmosphere of the civil rights movement and embrace the beauty and diversity of San Antonio. Learn how Fiesta royalty in 1969 helped pave the way for Fiesta royal today.

Blast from the Past: Fiesta 1969 is generously supported by the Fiesta San Antonio Commission, Inc.
