We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Frio Canyon Chamber of Commerce 2018! 

Excitement is building with new and worthwhile opportunities coming our way! 

In December, the 2017 Board of Directors approved and appointed nominees for the 2018 Board.  The nominees accepted their appointment, and the first meeting of the 2018 Board was held to elect officers and discuss a re-evaluation and forward progression of the Chamber.

We are extremely optimistic about the implementation of the constructive transformation coming in 2018 and the active development of such into 2019 and beyond! 

Monthly Board of Directors’/General Chamber meetings will be held at noon on the 1st Monday of every month, excluding June, July, and August.  Meetings will be held in the comfortable atmosphere of Bear’s Den, and we invite ALL members to attend to be an active part of this positive opportunity for all of us!

In 2018 we plan to focus on the events which have proven successful for many years, i.e. July Jubilee and Parade, Christmas Gala, and Christmas on the Square.  In addition to these events, we will focus on and assist with Making Spirits Bright founded by Penny Maguire and assist the non-profit organization Downtown Leakey, Inc., with the creation of the Festivity of Lights.  The Festivity of Lights will light up Leakey at Christmastime, and the current chairs for this new event are Penny Maguire, Vickie Crispin, and Lana Carr. 

We are looking forward to interactions with each member of the 2018 Chamber of Commerce, setting future goals, and most importantly economically advancing the Frio Canyon.  Our past board has done a fabulous job, and we need to continue their legacy. 

We hope you will join us in making the Frio Canyon a beneficial and exciting place for all to live.

Mission Statement

The Frio Canyon Chamber of Commerce supports all non-profit organizations, businesses and members (“members”) within the Canyon Area. We honor these “members” through the promotion of their business and fund raising community events throughout the year. By joining the Frio Canyon Chamber of Commerce, we support our “members” by posting on our Chamber website, their business/contact information and links to their website. Fund raising community events are supported by the Chamber of Commerce through advertising the calendar event on our website and email distribution of posters / flyers, to all  of our “members”.

Our goal is to promote support to our community and to make the public aware of the beautiful Frio River and Texas Hill Country. In turn, this will help enhance the area as a whole and improve the quality of life in this area. The Frio Canyon Chamber of Commerce will not give monetary donations and are unable to do “weekly sales or advertising”, but are pleased and proud to promote our “members” and community area events which effects the bottom line for all of us.

We thank you for allowing us to be a small part of your lives and hope your continued support of the Chamber will grow each year.

These things and more are yours to enjoy when you visit the Frio Canyon, located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country between the towns of Kerrville and Uvalde.

Action here focuses on the upper Frio River, flowing with clear, cold spring water through 100,000 acres of scenic beauty. The Frio River originates in northern Real County and, fed by springs and streams, tumbles over limestone rock to create waterfalls, rapids and pools on its way to Concan in Uvalde county. Along the banks are boulders, bluffs and grassy spots shaded by pecans, live oaks, sycamores and giant, centuries old, cypress trees.

Residents of this Land of 1100 Springs are proud of the natural beauty of their area and encourage visitors to help preserve it. Numerous river camps and lodges from Leakey to Concan - in addition to Garner State Park - offer visitors a variety of accommodations and outdoor activities. Year-round activities include fishing, hunting, bird watching, camping, cycling, and driving the spectacular mountain roads. In the fall, see the pristine nature of the canyon filled with the turning foliage's crimson and orange. Favorite summertime activities are swimming in and floating on the Frio River. Horseback ride anytime in these tranquil surroundings.

Leakey, the Real County seat, provides charming examples of early Texas Hill Country architecture: the hand cut, native stone structure of Real County Courthouse, First State Bank building and Leakey School, all on U.S. Highway 83. Markers at the courthouse commemorate the history of Leakey and its founders, John and Nancy Leakey, early settlers of Frio Canyon. Approximately six miles north of Leakey on Highway 336 a marker denotes the site of the McLauren Massacres, the last Indian massacre in the Southwest. Travel 7 miles south of Leakey on Highway 1120 to Rio Frio, the Canyon's first settlement, to see the nation s largest Texas Live Oak tree and the Lombardy Irrigation Ditch dug by pioneers to water their crops. The Real County Historical Museum at Leakey displays authentic furnishings, tools and personal items used by the early settlers of this unique ranching and farming valley. Plan to stop by and see the new Chamber Office / Visitor Center located in downtown Leakey. Local folks will welcome you warmly.
