Dia en la Sombrilla


Día en la Sombrilla, formerly Fiesta UTSA, is a festival hosted each spring as a part of Fiesta® San Antonio events. Sponsored by Roadrunner Productions, the event features music, food, confetti, games, event t-shirts, and more.

The event is now in its 46th year of entertaining thousands and cracked more than 50,000 cascarones. The primary focus of Día en la Sombrilla remains to create a space for student organizations to raise funds by selling food and drinks, host games, and providing services. Funds raised by organizations are used for their tournaments, conferences, events, and supplies throughout the year.
