How To Get To NIOSA

A Night In Old San Antonio is held in the downtown, historic arts village of La Villita. Located on the banks of the San Antonio River, and bounded by Alamo Street on the east, So. Presa Street on the west and E. Nueva Street on the south, La Villita was developed in the mid-to-late 1800’s as a settlement adjacent to Mission San Antonio de Valero (The Alamo).


The City of San Antonio and private parking contractors provide a variety of lots within easy walking distance to NIOSA. Rates will vary.

Public Transportation

VIA, the San Antonio public bus transportation system, offers Park & Ride service from several locations throughout the city. Visit VIA’s Park and Ride for routes and fares information. River taxis also provide transportation along the San Antonio River with stops convenient to NIOSA gates.

Bike Corral

This year, our Bike Corral will be located on S. Alamo & E. Nueva Street with valet services generously provided by South Texas Off-Road Mountain Bikers!
