Texas artist Kevin Fowler will headline as musical entertainment. Other performers include the Jaguarettes, A&M-SA Mariachi, Havana NRG, and Danzantes de Corazón, among others.
As part of the festivities, there will be 100 golden eggs hidden on campus for the public to find for a chance to win an official Festival de Cascarones merchandise item (several large golden eggs will also be hidden and winners will receive a swag bag of merchandise); Cascarones Smash with more than 6,000 cascarones; and a Golden Egg Contest, where student winners will receive free tuition for a semester at Texas A&M University–San Antonio.
The event will feature 47 food vendors, more than half of which will be student organizations. Official merchandise, including the Festival de Cascarones Fiesta medal, is available to order online at www.tamusa.edu and also will be available for purchase at the event. The day will include games and activities, such as fingerpainting, face painting, pet rock adoption, a Kid Zone, and more.
