Twilight on the Plaza

Join us on Friday June 21, 2013 for Twilight on the Plaza from 7:00 to 11:00 p.m. As part of the City of San Antonio’s Center City Development Office’s placemaking initiative, Travis Park will be transformed for an incredible evening of live music, shopping and dining.


The historic park will showcase a “Twilight Market,” which will offer an eclectic array of local vendors that will delight visitors with artistry, jewelry, clothing and accoutrements of all kind. The public is welcome to enjoy unique shopping with Sloan/Hall, Cruz Ortiz Art, Mariana’s Cake Shop, Jewelry Addict, Cool Beans, Italian Ice, Free Rose, Lemonade Company, and many other vendors. Live music by Spiders Jazz Quintet whose repertoire ranges from ultra modernized standards to off-the-wall Latin jazz, lantern tours of historic Travis Park, and the unveiling of the  Travis Park Concept Plan developed by Project for Public Spaces will keep visitors busy during this summer solstice celebration.  The Twilight Market, music, and tours are all free to the general public.

For the ultimate summer solstice experience, guests can purchase tickets to a festive feast under the stars. Michelle Green and Mousshine of Sweet Thyme will bring their culinary talents to the table to prepare a New Moroccan four-course meal served with perfectly paired wines by Chilean Wine Imports. Guests can also enjoy a cocktail reception courtesy of Cinco Vodka with the purchase of dinner ticket. Tickets are $75 each and $140 per couple. Purchase dinner tickets at Sweet Thyme.  A portion of the dinner proceeds will go to benefit The Mayor’s Fitness Council – Food Policy Council.

The evening’s festivities will take place just steps from The St. Anthony Riverwalk Wyndham Hotel, which will round out the evening with a one of a kind “Summer Solstice” hotel package that includes overnight accommodations, breakfast for two, and valet parking.
