On Wednesday, February 15 the Convention & Visitors Bureau division of the Chamber will host the 49th Annual Winter Visitor Reception from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the New Braunfels Civic Convention Center. Guests will enjoy music, refreshments, door prizes and the opportunity to mark on a large map of the United States where they are visiting from. You’ll see thumbtacks from all over the nation including South Dakota, Wisconsin, Michigan and Minnesota.
The Winter Visitor Reception is sponsored by our area HEB Stores and will welcome hundreds of our winter Texans. Winter Texans visit New Braunfels in the off season to enjoy our warmer weather, hospitality, medical care, and more. It is estimated that we host approximately 3,000 winter Texans annually. These guests are really part time residents. They volunteer at our area nonprofits, have established church ties here, and provide a much needed economic impact to the off season.
