The Folklife Festival provides a platform for over 40 cultures to show their music, cuisine, costumes, and dance. The event is held at the Institute of Texan Cultures in downtown San Antonio's Hemisfair Park. Six stages are erected for the duration of the fair and they play host to a wide variety of international musical and dance performances. There are also roving performers moving through the crowds, ready to break out in song and dance at any moment. One of the main attractions of the fair is the wide variety of food that is both delicious and unusual. Coupons sold at the entrance gates can be used to buy both food and drinks.
