On the craftier side of things, "Craft Tuesday: Fiesta Craft DIY" on March 12, from 5-7 p.m., provides all the supplies needed for a creative evening, as reported on the City of San Antonio’s website. Medal collectors will have their day during "Medal Fest" held on the same date from 4-8 p.m., where the year’s most coveted Fiesta medals will be up for grabs.

Fans of the Emerald Isle can revel in the St. Patrick's Day festivities, which include dying the River Walk green, an artisan show, and live entertainment. This flurry of activities takes place from March 16-17, with details available on the River Walk Operations website. "Dancing in the Dark" kicks in on March 26, offering free conjunto dance lessons from 6-8 p.m.
