50th Anniversary

The year 2018 marked two great milestones in the history of the city of San Antonio, TX. – the 300th anniversary of the founding of San Antonio back in 1718, as well as the 50th anniversary of the San Antonio World’s Fair – HemisFair 68. Throughout the anniversary year there were many events, exhibits, lectures, tours and celebrations in honor of the 1968 World’s Fair.

As an avid collector and historian on HemisFair 68′ it was my great privilege to invited to participate in several of these events across the city to celebrate and share the history of this unique event in our city’s rich history. As part of my ongoing project to collect, preserve and share the story of HemisFair 68′; I have worked to chronicle all the 50th anniversary events and created the listing on the left side menu to share with you all the exciting events which took place throughout 2018.
