San Jacinto Day Festival and Battle Reenactment

You’re invited to join us as we go take in a celebration of a pivotal point in Texas, and U.S. History…the Battle of San Jacinto. Hope you enjoy our brief look at this event.

Every April in Houston, Texans (and others) gather at the San Jacinto Monument for a one-day event that commemorates the Battle of San Jacinto.

Like any festival, the San Jacinto Day Festival and Battle Reenactment; there’s a variety of performers, vendors, food trucks and to this is added a variety of reenactors, displays and more. Check out our video below!

Now, I know we didn’t see it all…and this was my first outing shooting video with the GoPro, so it was a learning curve…painful at that…unfortunately I missed some great audio moments because of how the GoPro works. Ah well, just chalk it up to learning! (Note to self...turn GoPro on at side main button, THEN use the capture button on top to stop and start video!)


Here’s just a few of the 60+ Festival and Reenactor groups and vendors we saw:

  • Texas Naval Squadron
  • Sons of the Republic
  • Buffalo Soldiers
  • Texas Camel Connection
  • Black Beaver, Delaware Blanket Trader
  • North Harris County Dulcimers
  • HSPVA Mariachi Los Pasajeros
  • Fred Rusk & the Zydeco Hi-Steppers
