(June 10, 2005)--Among the sizzles of German sausage, the bright lights of the carnival and the rock-and-roll tunes of Johnny Dee and the Rocket 88s, UTSA students, faculty and staff gathered Friday for the debut of UTSA Night at the Texas Folklife Festival. Rowdy, the UTSA cheerleaders and Mariachi Los Paisanos, the UTSA mariachi group, were on hand to greet festival-goers.

Visitors to the festival enjoyed live music and dance on 10 stages, 150 food choices from 40 ethnic groups and 60 demonstrations of early Texas life. The first 150 people to stop by the UTSA meeting area at Stage 9 each hour received three free food/drink coupons compliments of the Office of the President.
The 35th annual Texas Folklife Festival will be June 8-11, 2006 at the Institute of Texan Cultures.
