Keep in mind that this does not include all brands that may be sponsoring each event, and that there’s always room for further surprises along the way.

* = local businesses that put on big events VERY worthy of your patronage, and a great chance to meet real people that actually LIVE in Austin. Keep Austin Weird, support local businesses, and take a day to cross the river and hit the shops along South Congress, you’ll be glad you did. And if you make it over to Waterloo, be sure to hop next door for a scoop of Amy’s Ice Cream!
