Welcome to the Future of Downtown: A celebration of Austin presented by the Downtown Austin Alliance. We’re bringing all the best parts of downtown to the Moody Amphitheater at the Waterloo Greenway for you to immerse yourself in the “Downtown Austin Amplified: 18-Hour Experience.”

During our event on June 1 from 4:30 – 7:30 PM, we’ll highlight findings from our annual State of Downtown economic development report, have local experts weigh in on the growth of downtown Austin as an 18-hour “live, work, play” city and bring you inspiring hands-on activations featuring local artists and the newest technologies. Enjoy light bites, drinks and live music.
