Pronounced "Fee-ess-tah ooht-sah", Fiesta UTSA is one of two annual festival events sponsored by Campus Activities Board, with Best Fest being its Fall semester counterpart. Organizations can raise funds with booths for selling food or activities. Usually live music will accompany the festival and a procession of the San Antonio Fiesta Court will also be featured. The festival is an official event on the city-wide Fiesta calendar. As with Best Fest, the organization that the judges deem to have decorated their booth the best will have first choice on what product or service to sell at the following festival event (in this case, the following year's Best Fest).

The event was initially sponsored and run by the Student Representative Assembly but was deferred to the University Center Program Council on April 6, 1988.[1]
