SAN ANTONIO – Some say Barbacoa and Big Red are staples of San Antonio.

The city even has an entire festival dedicated to their favorite food and drink combo.

The date for the Barbacoa and Big Red Festival has been announced for Sunday, May 20 at the R&J Music Pavillion.

The child-friendly event invites the community to come together for food and entertainment.

Since the festival’s founding in 2012, their mission has been to bring “the city, community and families together over a common local staple.”
