Celebrating 60 years of the festival

The San Antonio Folk Dance Festival (SAFDF) celebrates dancing, music, costumes, and friendship of cultures from all over the world. This year is extra-special -- it marks SAFDF's 60th anniversary. Join us for an extended, weeklong, celebration! In addition to all the beloved SAFDF traditions, we are proud to bring you:




Learn international folk dances

SAFDF features workshops in beautiful and fun dances from all over the world, taught by world-renowned folk dance teachers.

Enjoy lively dance parties

Festival evenings culminate in parties featuring folk dance favorites that keep everyone, from complete beginners to seasoned veterans, dancing for hours. And there's great food too!

Experience the concert of folk dance performances

The SAFDF concert is a dazzling show of beautiful costumes, music, and motion by talented local performing groups and the occasional extra-special guests from far away. And this year we have two concerts, in honor of our big celebration!

Partake of great food at the Henry Lash Bash

Sunday features this historic SAFDF tradition - a delicious catered lunch and a great chance to catch up with friends old and new.
