Pachanga de Palabras: A Westside Book Festival

September 28 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

| Free

The Pachanga de Palabras is a Westside book festival, taking place in the heart of the Westside of San Antonio in the Historic Plaza Guadalupe on September 28, 2019 from 6pm – 10pm. The Pachanga de Palabras will have book and zine vendors, food vendors, interactive free workshops for children as well as adults, poets, live music, and a drag king story time. The Pachanga de Palabras seeks to promote literacy as well as celebrate bilingual and Spanish literature.


Echale Books has been providing affordable books to their community of the Westside of San Antonio for over 2 years via book pop-ups. They also recently installed a Little Free Library by Las Palmas Elementary. We specialize in Chicanx/Latinx/Bilingual/Spanish, feminist, LGBTQ, and politically progressive books, although we provide genres of all kinds.


Line-up will be announced later in the summer. Gacho Marx, La Voz de Los MENtirosos, San Antonio’s only Drag King Troupe, will be our Emcee for the festival!
