We work to preserve the historic and creative through monthly cultural art events and arts inspired education. 

One creative community. 

Southtown The Arts District 501(c)6 organization is one creative community: Collins Garden, King William, Lavaca, Lone Star and Roosevelt. These neighborhoods host San Antonio’s  diversity in the arts culture.  Southtown is home to First Friday, Second Saturday, the city’s longest running artwalks (20 years) and “A Day in Southtown” our annual festival.


This is San Antonio’s creative district and we want you to be a part of it’s future success!  The area’s creative resource has grown steadily over 25 years demonstrating sustainability and more importantly, community. The arts and it’s imaginative events are the primary ingredient for the success we are witnessing. Your contribution demonstrates your support. Your interest keeps us creative!
