Our Austin events calendar is usually pretty full — let’s face it: Austin is a VERY happenin’ city — but this weekend seems particularly packed with all kinds of cools goings-on. Enough to warrant a post in my little blog, at least.
Presented without prejudice and in no particular order, here’s what’s going down this weekend in the ATX:
Eeyore’s Birthday — No, not exactly a kids’ event, though there’s a little something for everybody (and it’s decidedly Austin-weird).
Austin Bookstore Crawl — Celebrate Independent Bookstore Day in style!
Beast of the East Backyard BBQ Cook Off — The name says it all.
Austin Food & Wine Festival — Food, wine, sunshine.* What else do you need? (*Okay, the sunshine might not happen. Best two out of three.)
Annual Dragon Boat Festival & Races — A family-friendly event, with music and dance performances, martial arts demonstrations, Taiko Drums, Lion Dance and a Kids’ Zone with special activities for children. All that, plus dragon boat races on Lady Bird Lake!
Jazz & Art on Main — This event in Cedar Park features arts & crafts, live music & tasty eats.
Vintage Market Days of Austin-Hill Country – A vintage inspired open-air market in Dripping Springs featuring original art, antiques, clothing, jewelry, handmade treasures, seasonal plantings and more tasty eats.
Mommy, Daddy & Me Book Club — Featuring children’s book author Yolanda King, this book club encourages children to read with their parents.
The Grease & La La Land Double Feature Sing Along — Double feature movies, music & singing at the Blue Starlight Drive-In — what could be more fun than that?
Daniel Tosh — The star of Comedy Central’s Tosh.0 is appearing at the Frank Erwin Center.
Now, I don’t want to hear anybody saying they’ve got nothing to do this weekend! Even if the weather is looking kinda iffy… 🙂
Have fun out there, y’all, and be safe!
