For one night only, a dozen of San Antonio’s most exciting bands perform Michael Jackson’s "Thriller," from start to finish. Backed up by the YOSA Philharmonic (a full symphony orchestra), luminaries of the local music scene reinvent familiar hits from this beloved classic album. More than three decades after its release in 1982, "Thriller" remains one of the best-selling albums of all time. It won a record-breaking eight Grammy Awards in 1984, including Album of the Year, and was named one of the 20 greatest albums of all time by Rolling Stone in 2003. Don’t miss this rare chance to hear these legendary songs come to life in new and exciting versions.

Featuring Alyson Alonzo, Vanessa Lynn Bird, Alisa Claridy, The Foreign Arm, Carly Garza & Jaime Ramirez, King Pelican, MC² & The S.O.U.L., Mírame, The Moipei Triplets, Mr. Pidge, Recreating Eden, and Ponciano Seoane.

The Esperanza Peace and Justice Center celebrates 29 years of combining the arts with economic sustainability, international exchange, and social consciousness. Peace Market provides a family-friendly safe environment that honors the importance of moments and spaces where people gather outdoors and indoors together as community. This year the market will be held on Friday, November 23, Saturday, November 24 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, November 25, from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. 

As one of the oldest annual open-air international markets, the Mercado de Paz offers a community-centered alternative shopping destination during the busiest corporate shopping days of the year. Over 100 international and local artists/artisans will offer shoppers a variety of artful, beautifully handmade items, including hand woven rugs, hand crafted pottery, hand crafted textiles, hand-embroidered clothing, paintings, sculptures and much more.

The market will also offer live music from local performers and affordable and delicious food options from chicken mole to vegan menudo.

For the past 29 years, visitors and local patrons have gathered at the Esperanza Center free of charge, filling the two-story building, the back patio and spilling out into Evergreen – the adjacent street. The Esperanza Peace and Justice Center is located 1.5 miles north of the downtown library on San Pedro and Evergreen St. across from the VIA offices.
