HemisFair ‘68

HemisFair ‘68 was the first official international exposition held in the Southwestern U.S.  It was held in San Antonio from April 6 to October 6, 1968.  With an overall theme of “Confluence of Civilization in the Americas,” San Antonio’s mixed cultural heritage was celebrated.  It also highlighted San Antonio’s potential as a center for international commerce and cultural exchange between the U.S. and Latin America.

 

HemisFair ‘68 attracted more than 6.3 million visitors.  More than 30 nations participated, many with special exhibit pavilions.  The fair was held on a 92.6-acre site.  Several permanent structures were built for the fair, including the theme structure, a 622-foot Tower of the Americas.
