Experience a night to remember as you slowly ‘Drift & Dine’ along the River Walk. Discover new restaurants and revisit old favorites. Relax in good company with music to hear, a sunset to watch, food to savor, and a feeling of bliss. Go with the flow. Savor the flavor.

Drift & Dine is a three-day event running September 25-27, 2018. Twelve beautifully decorated dinner boats carrying 16 passengers each will float along the river making seven restaurant stops during their journey. Drinks will be available for purchase at each stop. The culinary voyage takes place on three individual nights with special tiered pricing available for individuals and entire boats. Tickets go on sale July 17 and will be sold online at TheSanAntonioRiverWalk.com.
