Take in Downtown New Braunfels’ sights, sounds, and shops while sipping free samples of wine at the 12th Annual New Braunfels Downtown Association Wine Stroll!
On Thursday, Oct. 6, 31 downtown businesses will stay open late from 5:00-8:30pm. Come downtown for wine, music, and food. Enter drawings for some really great prizes donated by participating businesses and for a chance to win DTA gift cards that can be spent at any of the participating businesses.
Shuttles will be provided to help wine strollers get around. Park behind Adele Kerr & Co at Seguin & Elm or at the McKenna Event Center’s overflow lot next to Red Rooster Antiques on W. San Antonio St. Shuttles at those locations will conveniently drive you into downtown.
Don’t forget to get your commemorative 2016 DTA Wine Stroll stemless wine glass! Last year these sold out prior to the stroll! To ensure that you get your glass, pre-order them online. Then pick up at Seekatz Opera House, 265 W. San Antonio St. on the night of the stroll. If glasses are still available, they can be purchased at Seekatz Opera House that evening. Glasses sell for $10 and are not required to participate in the stroll.
Maps and passports will be available at Seekatz Opera House and at the participating stops. You can also download and print a map before you head downtown. There are three types of stops this year – BLUE, RED, and PURPLE. All will be serving wine samples and/or other refreshments.
Enter to win $50 DTA gift cards at ALL of the participating stops. At every stop, ask for an entry ticket; fill in your name, phone number, and email address. Turn in tickets before you leave the stop. DTA gift cards are worth $50 and can be spent at any one of the downtown businesses that are participating in the 2016 DTA Wine Stroll. At least ten of these gift cards will be given away. The drawing for gift cards will be done on Friday morning, October 7th, and will be announced by 10:00am on the New Braunfels Downtown Association Facebook page.
– To qualify to win one of two grand prizes, complete your passport by getting it stamped at a RED stop (described and located on the map). There are 6 squares on the passport. Each one of the squares must be stamped at a different RED stop. The RED stops are marked in red on the map, and you need to visit 6 of these to get your passport completed. Be sure to fill in your name, phone, and email address and then turn in the stamped passport at any one of the RED stops to enter the drawing. Prizes are listed on the passport. The drawing for the prizes will be done on Friday morning, October 7, and announced by 10:00am on the New Braunfels Downtown Association Facebook page. Winners will be contacted by phone or email.
– Did you know that October is Texas Wine month? Come celebrate our great Texas wineries with us! When you visit a PURPLE stop, you get a chance to taste some of the best wines in Texas. The PURPLE stops also have food to sample! You can’t get your passport stamped at a purple stop, but there will be special offers, in-store drawings, discounts, and entry tickets for the gift card drawing.
– Be sure to stop in at a BLUE stop to enter the gift card drawing. Taste some wine and check out the in-store specials. Find something special to wear to a holiday party or do a little early Christmas shopping. If you win one of the $50 DTA gift cards, you can redeem it at any of the businesses participating in the 2016 Wine Stroll. Passports are not stamped at a blue stop.
