Tejano Day

May 3, 2023
12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
South Steps of the Texas State Capitol

The Tejano Day celebration, organized by TAMACC, will take place on May 3rd at the South Steps of the Texas State Capitol between 12:00 PM and 2:00 PM. The event will feature Mariachi, Ballet Folklorico, speakers, and other festivities, followed by refreshments on the Capitol lawn next to the Tejano monument. Although the celebration was initially scheduled for April 6th, it has been rescheduled to May 3rd, 2023, due to severe weather conditions. This is a free event that is open to the public.

For more than three centuries, Tejanos of Spanish, Mexican, African, and indigenous descent have been essential to the history and heritage of the state of Texas. From founding its earliest permanent settlements, including cities such as San Antonio, Nacogdoches, Victoria, Goliad, and El Paso, to being the first to name many of Texas’ waterways and natural features, the contributions of Tejanos have been significant.
