Been in San Antonio over a decade and always make a point to leave town during Fiesta, it is agony on earth.

I'm a life long San Antonian (31 years) and cannot stand Fiesta. Luckily, up until a little over a year ago I had no children, now I fear that as my son grows up I will have to start going to fiesta events.

I've never been to a Fiesta event and am thinking about the oyster bake. What exactly is meant by ghetto and rowdy? If it's a party atmosphere with some drunks, that's perfectly fine. If it's a huge collection of vomiting people of... um, lesser status... that's a lot less ideal.

For me, we used to have a blast at Oyster Bake, but along with a lot of other events that used to be fun to go to, it has gone to the way of a lot of low-lifes that can't handle their beer. Get buzzed and start looking for a fight or doing something stupid. Not everyone of course, but it has gotten to the point where I no longer go to Fiesta. Then again, maybe i'm just getting old and grumpy.....

Depends on when you go also....like others have posted, Sat. night is probably the rowdiest.

Last year was the last year I went and seriously doubt I will go again...it has been going downhill every year Just a lot more low lives been going lately......and then they get drunk.....picking fights...more drama than fun. Every year I see more fights and plain stupidity. If you must go, then go on Friday night......Saturday night is usually when there is more problems. I hear they will have 200 police/security working which is quite an increase over years before, so that should be an indication.

Our Lady of the Lake University is hosting its first Fiesta event on the first Sunday (April 21). It is family friendly! It's called "Best of the West" - music, food, and fun!

Here's the link from the Fiesta website: Event Single Fiesta San Antonio

Don't forget the Battle of the Bands at Alamo Stadium!

Does Battle of the Bands get sold out before the event starts or do you go there to get the tickets?

Surprised I heard no one mention taste of the north side. Great event.

As for the Oyster bake. What do you expect, it's right in the middle of the west side. It needs to be relocated. Seriously. Maybe at the UTSA main campus?
