About Cornyation
Since becoming a non-profit organization, Cornyation has donated almost $2M to local charities. Last year's beneficiaries include SAAF (San Antonio AIDS Foundation), & Beat AIDS (Black Effort Against the Threat of AIDS)
An official Fiesta® San Antonio event, Cornyation is one of the most popular events of Fiesta Week. Cornyation can be traced back to as early as 1951. It was originally staged by SALT (San Antonio Little Theater) at the Arneson River Theater as part of A Night in Old San Antonio®. The show's irreverent pokes at politicians, the prominent and the not-so-prominent, caused its demise as part of NIOSA in 1964. It was moved and performed once more in 1965. The show was revived in 1979 for one year as part of NIOSA and then in 1982, Bob Jolly and Ray Chavez revived the current version which has remained uninterrupted since!<br />
Fiesta Cornyation is a permanently committed non-profit charitable organization with the purpose of enriching the lives of people in San Antonio with HIV or affected by HIV. Also established is the Robert Rehm Scholarship, which grants college scholarships to San Antonio students majoring in Theatre Arts.
