Our 122nd Annual Gala is tomorrow night, and we will be celebrating a year full of accomplishments in the beautiful Hemisfair Ballroom at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. This dazzling event will bring together our Chamber family as we look forward to 2017. It is no secret that parking downtown can be a challenge, and with the hundreds of attendees we expect Thursday night, we have recommendations for the night of Gala.
Valet parking for Gala attendees will be complimentary, with drop off in front of the Convention Center on Market Street. Valet parking will open at 5:30 p.m. and remain open until our final guest leaves. If you need to park elsewhere, our best suggestions for paid parking are the Convention Center garage on Bowie Street, the Marriott Riverwalk Hotel garage or the Rivercenter Mall garage on Commerce Street. Additionally, all of downtown San Antonio’s parking meters are free after 6 p.m.
We hope to see you at Gala on Thursday evening. It will surely be a night to remember as we bid farewell to our 2016 Chairwoman Renée Flores, Regional Vice President of External and Legislative Affairs at AT&T and welcome 2017 Chairman Rad Weaver, CEO of McCombs Partners.
