    U.S. Army North (Fifth Army) will host Army Day at the Alamo as part of the 2021 Fiesta San Antonio celebration, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., June 22, 2021.

    Army Day at the Alamo is free and open to the public, and will offer those in attendance the opportunity to interact with Soldiers and to view an array of demonstrations and performances showcasing the military service’s 246-year history and heraldry, including ‘Fort Sam’s Own’ 323d Army Band; the U.S. Army Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps; the U.S. Army Drill team; and a presentation of the nation’s colors by U.S. Army North Caisson Platoon, mounted atop their horses.

    Fiesta San Antonio began in 1891 as a one-parade event to honor the memory of the heroes of the Alamo and the Battle of San Jacinto. Since then, Fiesta has grown into a celebration of San Antonio’s rich and diverse culture.

    As partners, Fort Sam Houston and the Army are proud to be a part of the Military City USA community, and this event.
