Normally, this would be a long week of partying and celebrating in San Antonio. But due to Stay Safe, Stay Home orders, Fiesta has been postponed until this fall. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t some Fiesta fun to be had at home. Check out our guide below!

If you stop by Mi Tierra, you can get a complete Fiesta Survival Kit. The kits include Guac, bellpeppers, salsa, cacarones, pico de gallo, papel picado and three pounds of fajitas. The kit also comes with a loteria game and access to a fiesta playlisr. Margaritas and micheladas to go are also sold separately.
