2018 NEF 5K joins Helotes Cornyval, partners with San Antonio Tricentennial Celebration

This event is making some big changes! NEF is partnering with the City of Helotes and the Helotes Festival Association to provide a full day of fun for the community on Saturday, May 5, 2018. 

Get your red ruby kicks or cowboy boots ready because the Wizard of Oz is going country y’all, and making history!

In 2018, San Antonio will mark its 300th anniversary. NEF is honored to announce its partnership with the San Antonio Tricentennial and to be part of this historic celebration that will showcase educational, artistic and entertaining events, including the NEF 5K!

The 5K start and finish line will be at O’Connor High School. The race starts at 8 a.m. and the Cornyval Parade starts at 10 a.m. The 5K route runs along most of the parade route and includes some time in beautiful Old Town Helotes. After the race, stay and play at the parade and Cornyval Festival. The festival grounds will open exclusively for NEF 5K participants at 11 a.m. Plus, festival tickets are half price - only $5* - for 5K participants. *Festival admission is free for children 12 and under.
