I seen online that there was an Ice Cream Festival last year. Do they have that every year or was in a 1 time thing?

What other festivals are worth attending?

Boy, you can hardly throw a rock in this area without hitting a festival!

I can't find anything about another Ice Cream Festival, but here's their website you can watch just in case. Since the last one was in August, I'm thinking if there's another one it'll be right around then. There's contact info on that website in case you want to go right to the source.

The Austin Chocolate Festival is this weekend.

The Texas Wine & Food Festival is in April - it's many days long, but you can attend the parts that you're really interested in, and I highly recommend Sunday Fair the last day of the festival.

The 45th Annual Eeyore's Birthday Party is the last weekend in April.

The Old Pecan Street Festival, Spring edition, is in May (fall festival is in September).

SXSW starts today and runs through the 16th.

The Austin City Limits Music Festival is in September, but you'll want to get your tickets as soon as possible.
Here's a list of lots of festivals in Austin, many of them coming up soon.

And that's only the tip of the iceberg. What are you particularly interested in? Bet I can find a festival in honor of it! (ANY excuse to party is Austin's motto - well, one of them, anyway.)

The brand new Long Performing Arts Center is having it's Sneak Peek this weekend:
This weekend-

The Long Center Presents

All the performances are free; it seems you have to get tickets online, but they are all $0.00. Not sure how that works. One of the venues is outside on a terrace of some sort, you could probably just walk-in for that one.

This sounds interesting: First Annual Pysch Fest

((((((((((((( L I V E M U S I C C A P I T O L ))))))))))))

Seems like some old-style pyschedelic and art? Inspired by the Vulcan Gas company? At a new venue called the Red Barn on Burnet? Anyone know anything about this?

The rodeo is going on: .::Star of Texas::. - yee ha

There is the Starflight 5K at Zilker Saturday morning.

Whole bead show at the convention center: Whole Bead Show

Seconda Saturday Art Trail in Kerrville - Art In The Hills

Hill Country outdoors "Hikes You'll Like" at the Barton Creek Greenbelt on Sunday: Austin's Most Active Outdoor, Sport and Social Club - Hill Country Outdoors - Membership Web Site by Memberize.com


You have no reason to stay home this weekend!

I am moving there next month, so I am very excited about these festivals. If there is going to be an Ice cream festival, hope they make enough, I am an addict, also with the salsa . Oh and the chocolate festival, yummmmmy!

I might just try and hit all of them and learn what each one is all about
