1st Annual – Wimberley Community Celebration | Kicking off the new school year!
Saturday 8/14/2021 10:30-1:00

The Barnabas Connection is excited to celebrate the 15th annual Back-to-School Fiesta!

(Celebration hosted by Cypress Creek Church)

Over the last year, we have seen again just how important the coming together of all of our community is.

We want to celebrate the start of the new school year by the partnering of community agencies, nonprofits, businesses, churches, and families.

In celebration of our 15th anniversary, we are expanding the Back-to-School Fiesta to include ALL community members with children, by having a community celebration after the supply portion of The Back-to-School Fiesta.

The Goals of Expanding the Back-to-School Fiesta to a community-wide event are:

How it works:

The Back to School Fiesta provides backpacks, school supplies, and other services to approximately 500 students living within the boundaries of Wimberley ISD. Multiple community partnerships, donors and volunteers make this program possible.

Please join us in supporting this important event for our local students in need!  Let’s send them to school excited about the learning to come!

If you are looking to participate as a recipient, you can register online here:
