Illume at San Pedro Creek

San Pedro Creek Culture Park’s Annual Holiday Event

It was a wonderful time had by all as we celebrated the holidays with Illume: Making Spirits Bright, a one-night event that highlighted the food, dance, music, and art of our diverse and festive community. 2020 has impacted everyone’s lives, but this annual event still went on – virtually. On Dec. 12, 2020, San Pedro Creek Culture Park held our 3rd annual event that featured holiday favorite cooking demonstrations and dance performances from around the world. Although this year’s event was virtual, the park remains open and accessible to everyone during the holiday season. Visit before Jan. 4, 2021 to see the festive light displays.
Free parking is available at the Christopher Columbus Italian Society at 201 Piazza Italia.

***In accordance to CDC guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic, mask wearing and social distancing are strongly encouraged while on our facilities, parks, and trails.***

As part of the San Antonio River Authority (River Authority) commitment to safe, clean, enjoyable creeks and rivers, the River Authority maintains more than 500 acres of parks along the San Antonio River’s 240-mile course. The San Pedro Creek Culture Park, located on the western edge of downtown San Antonio not far from the Alamo, exemplifies beauty with purpose, as it serves as vital infrastructure for a growing downtown.

The River Authority is responsible for the operations and maintenance of the new park, which includes creating programming and events for community engagement. The park’s first phase opened on May 5, 2018, and since then, the River Authority has installed holiday lights each year throughout the park in addition to commissioning temporary artworks.
