San Jacinto Day Festival and Battle Re-enactment
The largest battle re-enactment in the southwest is the centerpiece of the admission-free festival held on the grounds surrounding the San Jacinto Monument. The re-enactment recreates the events leading up to Texas winning its independence from Mexico 182 years ago at the decisive Battle of San Jacinto on April 21, 1836. Visitors can wander freely among the Mexican and Texian camps to learn what the soldiers and their families were doing prior to the battle in 1836. Watch the official (and historically accurate) re-enactment of the Battle of San Jacinto, with hundreds of history re-enactors, cannons, horses, and pyrotechnics. Enjoy family activities, entertainment, craft vendors, food, cultural exhibits, and games. The Monument is open all day. Visitors can ride the elevator to the top for a panoramic view of the festivities, explore the special exhibit, watch a Texas history digital presentation, and tour the hundreds of museum pieces on display.
