About Spouses & Family Activities

TBA is family friendly! Each year, the Spouses Board plans activities to entertain, educate, and involve family members who attend the convention. Drawing on the rich cultural, historical, and unique heritage of San Antonio, families can have a wonderful time while making new friends. After registering, come over to the Spouses Booth, check out the activities, and sign up for special tours and fun!

The Spouses Luncheon is a longtime tradition, taking place on Friday in the Lonesome Dove Room (LDR) of the Convention Center. It’s best to pre-register at the $50 level to reserve your ticket. Friendly faces, favors, food and fun are standard, but expect a few surprises this year!

Wishing to exercise your creative side? Join us after the Luncheon for a Painting Party! All supplies will be provided, as well as a local artist who will guide you as you create a treasure to take home. Complimentary childcare is provided by Kids Quest in nearby rooms at the Convention Center.

On Saturday, a complimentary shuttle will make rounds between the Pearl, the fascinating and newly renovated Witte Museum, and the Convention Center. Spend a couple of hours or all day. If you are bringing young children, they will enjoy some time playing at nearby Yanaguana Park, participating in a scavenger hunt, learning about dinosaurs at the Witte, and having a blast at the Saturday evening Barbecue on the river.
