50th Annual Witte Game Dinner

5:30 p.m.  – 10:30 p.m.

Join us as we celebrate 50 years of the Witte Game Dinner with an unforgettable experience for the history books. We are taking it back to our roots, hosting an authentic South Texas ranch experience under the stars, complete with wild game, campfires, and live Texas country music by Robert Earl Keen. All in the Witte’s Zachry Family Acequia Garden or from the comfort of your home.

As the Witte Museum recovers from the pandemic, we are reminded of the incredible strength and resiliency found in each of us. With the help of the community, the Witte Museum opened in 1926 and just three years later, encountered the world-wide depression. It took a lot of ingenuity and taking care of each other to get through that crisis, just like the one we face today. But together, we will emerge from these difficult times with renewed hope, like many who came before us. 

We need your help now more than ever. The Witte Game Dinner is the museum’s largest fundraiser. Please join us for a one-of-a-kind event to honor the Witte and the Game Dinner’s 50-year heritage and raise money to ensure that children and families can continue to experience all the museum has to offer. Together, we can create a museum that is stronger than ever. Join us in making the Witte Forever.

Make sure you don’t miss this great opportunity! Reserve your table now; they are going fast! Reserved tables for 10 guests are available for $25,000, $15,000, and $10,000. 


All funds raised at the Witte Game Dinner provide valuable support for the programs and exhibits of San Antonio’s most widely visited public museum. Click here to learn more about the Witte Museum’s Community Commitment during the COVID-19 pandemic.
