The San Antonio spirit of generosity and giving is never stronger than during the holidays. You can see it — you can feel it — across our membership community and in our hearts. Our holiday gift to you, our members, is a storybook moment featuring the joy of storytelling and the magic of holiday tunes. Event begins with a performance of Merry Christmas Mouse by the Magik Theatre. The San Antonio Book Festival will entertain you with readings from local authors and Opera San Antonio will help spread the cheer of the holidays with their talented carolers. This members-only family event also includes selfies with Santa, CHEF bites in the outdoor kitchen, hands-on activities, food trucks, an additional 10% discount in the Garden Gift Shop, and a chance to see David Rogers’ Big Bugs exhibition during its final weekend at the Botanical Garden.
