The Woman's Club of San Antonio
The Woman's Club supports, promotes, and attempts to bring about an environment where all persons regardless of race, creed, color, religion, national origin, sex or sexual orientation, age or physical condition will have equal opportunity to participate in the life and goals of The Woman's Club of San Antonio.
We appreciate your interest in The Woman's Club of San Antonio. We hope that you will join us. Our general membership meetings are held once a month on the first Wednesday of the month from October to June at the Woodward House. At these meetings, we discuss upcoming events and take care of club business. The meetings include a program followed by an enjoyable lunch. Summer luncheons and programs are held on the third Wednesdays in June, July, and August. A fall luncheon is held on the third Wednesday of September at the San Antonio Country Club and includes a fashion show and lunch. Smaller groups called "round tables" gather every month. These groups focus on a variety of interests and offer a great opportunity to make new friends in a more intimate setting. One of the many round tables meets in the evening.
Following the Fall Luncheon, the club members begin preparation for our "Christmas Faire". We bake and prepare gingerbread houses to be sold, and the house is beautifully decorated for Christmas. Decorating starts during the weekend after Thanksgiving. The Christmas Faire is open to the public and its success is possible through the efforts of many volunteers. It is a four-day event with two luncheon settings served each day. Approximately thirty vendors occupy the second floor, selling their goods, and The Woman's Club boutique is held in the Gold Room on the first floor. This is a festive affair which puts everyone in the Christmas spirit and provides a wonderful opportunity to shop for unique and beautiful gifts.
The city-wide celebration of Fiesta brings about many activities at The Woman's Club. We enjoy participation in the River Parade, our Fiesta Teen Queen Coronation and a reception for all Fiesta royalty, a two-day Fiesta Flower Show, the ever-popular Fiesta Hat Contest and Luncheon, the Battle of Flowers Parade, and the Pilgrimage to the Alamo.
