Unique Food items are prepared by thousands of NIOSA volunteers on-site. Many popular dishes can only be enjoyed at NIOSA, including Maria’s Tortillas, Anticuchos, its own German sausage, and Bongo-K-Bobs; 

NIOSA is a “Celebration for Preservation” and the top fundraiser for historic preservation in the United States. It is solely produced by and benefits The Conservation Society of San Antonio (one of the nation’s oldest and most active historic preservation organizations);
