In 2016, the San Antonio Beer Festival announced its new home in the city’s Eastside, at Dignowity and Lockwood Parks, located at 701 Nolan St, San Antonio, TX 78202.
The Festival has worked in partnership with the San Antonio Food Bank, the City of San Antonio, the Dignowity Hill Neighborhood Association, and District 2 City Councilman Shaw, to increase the event size and experience for local and regional guests and breweries. The 2017 footprint will span both Dignowity and Lockwood Parks, and the adjoining Burnet Street to accommodate the breweries, artisans, businesses and attendees.
Of the move, Dignowity Hill Neighborhood Association president, Brian Dillard, said, “We are thrilled to host such an amazing event in Dignowity Hill and extremely excited to partner with the [San Antonio Beer Festival] to build on existing momentum across the Eastside. This event is further evidence that the grassroots effort by Eastside residents and PSEast to make our parks to ‘do more, for more people’ is already succeeding.”
