Fiesta Store open with official 2012 merchandise


Although the Fiesta® Store, a one-stop shop for all official Fiesta merchandise, opened its doors Wednesday, Nov. 2, an official at grand opening has been slated for 10 am, Friday, Nov. 4.
The store, at 2611 Broadway, offers the 2012 Fiesta poster, T-shirts, caps, tote bags and lots more.
The official Fiesta poster pin and medal are breaking new ground this year, said Fernando Villarreal, interim executive director. As always, the design includes elements from the 2012 poster. But the pin includes seven elements-the Fiesta San Antonio basic pin and six smaller "charms" that will be released monthly through April.
"This year's pin will be a real collector's item," Villarreal predicted. "We know Fiesta fans will want to collect all seven sections."
Other new items this year include BluRay versions of the three Fiesta 2011 parades and Fiesta garden flags and banners.
Once again the volunteer Fiesta Craft Bunch has prepared Fiesta wreaths of artificial flowers, hand-painted cascarĂ³n earrings and necklaces, and other special items. As always, the store will carry pins and medals commissioned by many of the official nonprofit Fiesta member organizations.
The grand opening will feature a drawing at noon for a Fiesta gift package.
Through Dec. 23, the Fiesta Store hours are 10 am to 5 pm, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday and 10 am to 7 pm, Thursday. The store is closed holidays and weekends.
The Fiesta San Antonio Commission is a nonprofit organization that plans, coordinates and preserves Fiesta San Antonio through the support of its participating member organizations. Visit its website at, become a Fiesta fan at, or follow Fiesta at
