The Collective 

The EpiCenter of the Festival 


Welcome to The Collective at Travis Park! As the center of the Tasting Texas Wine + Food Festival guests will be immersed in some of the biggest names in food and beverage as they snack, sip, learn, shop, dance, and lounge the day away in this market-style experience. 


As a ticket holder for The Collective, you will have full access to food and drinks from more than 50 chefs and brands, experience hands-on demos, dive into seminars, shop artisan stalls, relax in our pop-up bistro, frolic in our kids zone, dance in front of our live stage, recharge in our cooling/wellness zone, and lounge all in this historic park. 


The Collective will be held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from noon to 6pm with packages as well as à la carte tickets available. 


So we invite you to gather your group, call up your family, and join us in celebrating the flavors of Texas + the bounty of this nation and its borders. Whether you join us for one day or all three, we look forward to hosting you in this stunning downtown space that was once the Mission farmlands of the Alamo.  

This event includes options for a VIP ticket, General Admission 21+ and Under 21 tickets. Children 6 and under are permitted access without the purchase of a ticket. 

The VIP Ticket includes all of the General Admission perks with the addition of a dedicated VIP Lounge with additional food and beverages as well as free access to Hopscotch, an immersive art gallery adjacent to Travis Park.

A Culinary Festival with a Purpose

Realizing a shared vision with the James Beard Foundation to make good food for good™, and spotlight women and minority communities, a partnership between the Foundation, Visit San Antonio, and Culinaria was a natural progression. Proceeds from Tasting Texas will benefit the James Beard Foundation’s scholarship programs, which in turn, provide opportunities for minority culinary talent to develop their skills and experience. Further, by providing high-level exposure to chefs from Texas, the city of San Antonio, and others across the country, Tasting Texas aims to help the restaurant industry, locally and nationally, grow from the devastating financial effects of the pandemic.
