Revelers and merry-makers, rejoice.
Ideal for fans of…well, everything.
Each week, downtown Austin provides a new occasion to celebrate and cheer. Our proximity to the University of Texas campus makes for a perfect Longhorn game day huddle spot. Or if racing’s more your speed, check out Circuit of the Americas, the only Formula One racing track in the U.S.
As for festivals, we pay homage to everything from local hot sauce and ice cream to the world’s arts and culture. Music is a big draw, of course, with the SXSW Music, Film, and Interactive Conferences and Festivals bringing thousands of international industry executives and fans downtown each spring, and the Austin City Limits Music Festival and Fun Fun Fun Fest filling our parks with tunes each fall.
Austin celebrates arts, culture, and performance with a number of festivals and events including Art Alliance Austin's annual Art City Austin in the Second Street District; Fusebox Festival, a contemporary art and performance festival; the Moontower Comedy Festival; the Austin Film Festival, and the East Austin Studio Tour.
