To promote the creative culture and commerce within it’s community through cultural events and arts education. 


One creative community. 

Southtown The Arts District is one creative community: Collins Garden, King William, Lavaca, Lone Star and Roosevelt. These neighborhoods host San Antonio’s arts, diverse culture and  creative business.  Southtown is home to First Friday, Second Saturday, the city’s longest running artwalks (20 years) and Southtown The Arts District Festival. 


This is San Antonio’s creative district and we want you to be a part of it’s future success!  The area’s creative resource has grown steadily over 25 years demonstrating sustainability and more importantly, community. The arts and it’s imaginative events are the primary ingredient for the success we are witnessing. Your contribution demonstrates your support. Your interest keeps us creative!  See how you benefit.
