Main Plaza is truly the heart of San Antonio and shares a rich history as the true beginnings of the Canary Island ancestors arrival. 

The Canary Islanders (Canary Islands Descendants Association) will be participating in Main Plaza's first Canary Island Dog Show, brought to the plaza in collaboration with the DOGO CANARIO CLUB OF AMERICA!  You will see a relatively small number of examples of the Dogo Canario dog breed - an historic breed that pre-dates the settlement of Canary Islanders in Texas.

Yes, on the East Promenade, Saturday, November 4th you will see Canary Islanders in traditional dress, sharing in the festivities of the K-9 that are brought from the Canary Islands to America.

This special event is brought to you through the collaboration of:

Dogo Canario Club of America, the Canary Islands Descendants Association and Main Plaza Conservancy.

Several food and drink options are available on Main Plaza where we are people friendly, dog friendly, bike friendly and mostly family friendly!!
