AccessAbility Fest is the result of a collaboration between non-profit organizations in San Antonio who serve individuals with disabilities and Texas Public Radio.
October is National Disability Awareness Month and several non-profits had attempted to individually make a splash for awareness in San Antonio throughout the years with limited results.
Each of the individual efforts were not making a wide enough impact, so a small group of non-profits decided to put together a collective effort. With Texas Public Radio as the lead media partner, AccessAbility Fest finally opened in 2007.
The event brings together organizations and non-profits to share information, resources, ideas and support for people with all types of disabilities.
The event celebrates all the things that people with disabilities can do, and encourages them to be active and express themselves with a range of activities and games; the event also serves to give those people who care for such individuals additional love and support.
AccessAbility Fest is open to the public and we encourage you to join us each October to celebrate and spread awareness for those with disabilities.
