San Antonio Cocktail Conference 2016 – Recap

The San Antonio Cocktail Conference (SACC 2016) was a unique experience with its parties, seminars, and tastings all in the name of children’s charities. Downtown San Antonio was buzzing with craft cocktails, tasty food, and plenty of dancing for this incredible fundraiser.

I attended as a first-timer and to give you some insight to what happens at SACC 2016! If you follow me on social media, you saw all the fun tweets, Instagram photos, and snaps. In case you miss it, here’s a social media recap of all the fun. #SACC2016 is the hashtag if you want to search for more photos and videos of the conference.


“100 percent of our profits go to children’s charities that are making a big difference in San Antonio. While the San Antonio Cocktail Conference is educational and great entertainment, the charities are the reason we’re here,” said Cathy Siegel, Executive Director of Houston Street Charities.



Profits from the 2016 conference will benefit local children’s charities including The Children’s Shelter, ChildSafe, Clarity Child Guidance Center, TEAMability and Transplants for Children.



Lo siento, Queridos, but most of the fun at the Waldorf on the Prairie at the St. Anthony Hotel ended up on Snapchat! I hope you got to see all the snaps before they disappeared.




Stroll on Houston Street SOLD OUT! Well done, San Antonio. Energy was high on Houston Street as attendees strolled up and down the street tasting new cocktails and eating more delicious food.




The experience was so much fun and I didn’t even get to cover it all! There were seminars for professionals in the industry, there was a Sunday brunch and before opening night, there was a Women Shaking it Up event.
