SAN ANTONIO, TX — Rodeo season in San Antonio will kick off once again with the second annual Southside Vaquero Breakfast on the morning of Friday, Jan. 27, with free food and live music from Texas Latino, Los Desperadoz, Chente Barrera, and more at the Far West Event Center.
The event began in 2022 when the COVID-19 pandemic limited attendance to the annual Cowboy Breakfast traditionally held on the northside of San Antonio, Lopez Entertainment decided to create an event on the southside for those who would like to enjoy a free breakfast with live entertainment.
Lopez Entertainment CEO/President Rudy Lopez came up with the idea of the event, telling Tejano Nation, “Why not do something on the south side? I called it Vaquero Breakfast to make it real authentic southside. Anything you would find in a real southside breakfast, the traditional breakfast tacos, pan de dulce, coffee of course, and I think we’ll even have some tamales and menudo out there.”
With the cancellation of the annual Cowboy Breakfast for 2023 after organizers were unable to meet the timeline to pull the logistics together to implement the annual in-person event, Lopez Entertainment continues this new tradition on San Antonio’s southside.
The second annual Southside Vaquero Breakfast takes place in the parking lot of Far West Event Center, 2502 Pleasanton Road, from 6 – 10 a.m. The event will also include a pop-up market featuring many vendors selling products, and attendees can do a little shopping. Additional performers include El Dorado Band, Marcus Daniels, JJ Villarreal, Mario Moreno, Cheyenne Saenz, and more.
