Alamo Kiwanis Club, chartered in 1947, is the largest Kiwanis Club in Division 5 of the Texas-Oklahoma District of Kiwanis International. The volunteer membership consists of representatives from some of the major firms in San Antonio, from law firms and insurance firms to retail companies.
In keeping with the objectives of Kiwanis International, the Club’s main focus has been to raise money for children’s charities in and around San Antonio through major fundraisers like the annual Fiesta Noche del Rio.
Launched in 1957, Fiesta Noche del Rio, the oldest outdoor dance performance of its kind in the United States, is presented at the historic Arneson River Theater on the San Antonio Riverwalk. These performances may be seen every Friday and Saturday night beginning in mid-May and continuing through mid-August.
