It has been a frigid start to the year in Austin. Record cold temperatures and a lack of fun events have made us even more anxious for the start of festival season in the ATX. Luck for us all, February starts off with some great events before SWSW and full blow party time kicks into full gear.
Carnaval Brasileiro – February 10
A Brazilian like Carnival. One of the big local events in Austin each year.
Austin Marathon – February 18
Typical there are about 20,000 racers. You can do a 1/2 marathon if you like, or just join the big block party dowtown at the finish line.
UFC Fight Night – Feburary 18th
Frank Erwin Center
COWBOY vs. MEDEIROS. I have never been to a UFC fight and still yearn for the days of boxing glory. But I might go check this out. For the kids and legions of other fight fans, this is a big deal for ATX.
Austin Oyster Festival – February 24
$60 to get in the door and 6 festival vouches that can be used for food and beverage. One of the newer festivals to ATX, we had a ball last year. It’s rain or shine with no refunds. Can’t send all the seafood back.
The Austin Music Award February 28
Hosted by the Conical at the Moody Theater in downtown Austin. Music award shows are a lot of fun.
