The International Contest of Texas

ModelFiesta is the longest running annual modeling event in IPMS Region 6. The first ModelFiesta was held in Wonderland Mall, now called Crossroads Mall, in 1982 and has been held each year since that first contest. The contest has grown in size and quality since its early days and now averages over 120 vendor tables and over 500 models entered in the contest each year.

Mark ModelFiesta 40 on your calendar! Alamo Squadron is proud to announce that ModelFiesta, the International Contest of Texas, is scheduled to be held on January 8, 2022, at the New Braunfels Civic Center.

The new home for ModelFiesta, the New Braunfels Civic Center (NBCC), is just a quick 20 min drive up the I-35 corridor from San Antonio, and it is closer for those coming to the event from the north (Austin, Dallas). For modelers coming in from the East (Houston, Louisiana), I-10 is still the primary route to take, exiting in Seguin on Hwy-46 to New Braunfels. From the west and south, attendees can connect to Hwy-46 through various roads and highways and reach New Braunfels with ease.

NBCC is a relatively new structure with excellent lighting, electrical hook-ups, and a professional and helpful staff. More details will be made available on this web-site via the ModelFiesta 40 link below, so please return frequently to see what information has been added.

New for ModelFiesta 40: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place Category Award Medals. Collect them all and wear them proudly!
