In addition to an Exhibitor Hall of local contractors and preservation organizations, the HHF provides educational sessions and hands-on demonstrations throughout the day which cover a wide array of topics including wood window repair, securing financing for a project, and even landscaping.

When we pull together, there's always hope! OHP is excited to announce a Summer STAR (Students Together Achieving Revitalization) project planned in partnership with Turner Construction.
Summer Interns from Turner Construction’s Central Texas Business Unit will be rolling up their sleeves for two days in July to make repairs to this historic home in City Council District 2.
The interns will be completing all aspects of the project, from estimating and purchasing to hands-on repair work, with the supervision of professional contractors. STAR projects like these can provide homeowners with much needed repairs valuing $5,000-$15,000.
STAR is a great opportunity for construction companies and contractors to give back to the community and reinvest in San Antonio. We challenge other companies to follow Turner Construction by hosting other STAR projects in San Antonio!
Follow STAR on Facebook or sign up for e-alerts where we will highlight the success of this project and announce who will be next to accept the STAR challenge to preserve our historic community!
World Heritage Festival Events
How can preservation be the heart of sustainable urban development?
OHP invites heritage professionals, policy-makers, academics, and grassroots preservationists from around the world to assemble in San Antonio to answer that question and produce new ideas for managing living heritage in historic cities.
The Living Heritage Symposium takes place on September 7 and 8 during the World Heritage Festival. Registration for professionals is currently just $95 through August 1, but the general public may also attend for free in a special gallery section.
