Travis Park, located at 301 E. Travis St., will be transformed for an incredible evening of live music, shopping and dining on Friday, June 21, 2013 from 7 to 11 p.m. The community is invited to this festive affair to welcome the summer and celebrate the longest day of the year. Hosted by the City of San Antonio's Center City Development Office (CCDO), the event coincides with the release of the Travis Park Concept Plan.
The historic park will showcase a “Twilight Market,” which will offer an eclectic array of local vendors that will delight visitors with artistry, jewelry, clothing and accoutrements of all kind. The public is welcome to enjoy unique shopping with Sloan/Hall, Cruz Ortiz Art, Mariana’s Cake Shop, Jewelry Addict, Cool Beans, Italian Ice, Free Rose, Lemonade Company, and many other vendors. Live music by Spiders Jazz Quintet whose repertoire ranges from ultra modernized standards to off-the-wall Latin jazz and interpretive activities will keep visitors busy during this summer solstice celebration. The Twilight Market, music, and interpretative activities are all free to the general public.
For the ultimate summer solstice experience, guests can purchase tickets to a festive feast under the stars. Michelle Green and Mousshine of Sweet Thyme will bring their culinary talents to the table to prepare a New Moroccan four-course meal served with perfectly paired wines by Chilean Wine Imports. Guests can also enjoy a cocktail reception courtesy of Cinco Vodka with the purchase of dinner ticket. Tickets are $75 each and $140 per couple. Purchase dinner tickets at www.sweetthymechef.com. A portion of the dinner proceeds will go to benefit The Mayor’s Fitness Council – Food Policy Council. For the latest news and images, find Twilight on the Plaza on Facebook and Yelp!
