The Friday evening event will be held at the famousBuckhorn Saloon & Museum that is also next door to the Texas Ranger Museum. Both venues have been rented and dinner will be served at this location. There will be several bars and food stations throughout the venues to refresh food and beverages as the attendees walk and enjoy the sites (all indoors). The Buckhorn Museum & Saloon is within walking distance of the hotel. However, there will be air conditioned trolley type buses running between the hotel and the Buckhorn.

For over 129 years, The Buckhorn Saloon has always been known as a gathering place for good conversation, great food and spectacular wildlife exhibits. Today, the saloon houses a Café, Gift Shop, Shooting Gallery and our two museums, the Buckhorn Museum and the Texas Ranger Museum.

The Buckhorn Museum features wildlife from all over the world; including fish, birds, and animal oddities. Our exhibit halls are comprised of over 520 species of wildlife, many of which are record holders.

The Buckhorn is home to a world record whitetail deer, the famous ‘78 Point Buck’. This impressive rack was sold to the saloon owner himself, Albert Friedrich, for a mere $100 dollars back in 1890. Other amazing specimens include a record 1,056 pound black marlin and a 10,000 year old pre-historic Irish Elk skull and antlers.

The Texas Ranger Museum, houses hundreds of Texas Ranger artifacts including revolvers, automatic handguns, sawed off shotguns, badges, photographs and much more. Notable Texas Rangers exhibited in the collection include, Ray Martinez, Joaquin Jackson, John B. Armstrong and Frank Hamer.

The highlight of the Texas Ranger Museum is ‘Ranger Town’, a recreation of San Antonio at the turn of the century. Explore this western town complete with a saloon, jail, blacksmith shop and telegraph office. The Bonnie and Clyde exhibit complete with a ‘34 Ford V8 Deluxe is a guest favorite.
