SXSW is canceled for the first time in 34 years and all of Austin (and what seems like the rest of the world) is scrambling. Whether you planned on working the festival or attending as a guest, you’ve probably suffered a loss in one way or another. For attendees, refunds won’t be available as the festival is expected to go on at a later date. However, there remains a financial uncertainty for many small businesses, vendors, artists, and freelancers who expected a large portion of their income to come from this event. As expected, Austinites have banded together in efforts to support those who are affected by this cancellation. Here’s how you can help:
It’s finally Fall! It’s that time of the year when we take our sweaters out of boxes (even though it’s still 100 degrees in Austin, TX) and consume pumpkin-spice flavored everything, despite what the haters say. As October 31st approaches, we could all use a fun night out to get us in the Halloween spirit! We have entertainment options for everyone, on the big screen AND the small screen, in-person, and even up close and personal!
Mark your calendars, because we’ve compiled a list of five Fall festivals this month, where you can eat, drink, play, and even immerse yourself into other cultures while doing it. All events are kid friendly and some are free to enter!
October is the perfect month to stroll around and shop for fresh food and vintage finds- the weather is cooling down, everyone is in a cheery Autumn mood, cravings for pumpkin pie are peaking. Luckily, Austin is a hot spot for flea markets and farmers markets. No matter your schedule or budget, you can find the occasion to shop around every week this month. Plus, most are completely free to enter!
