It has been a mild winter in ATX. The Longhorns got the party started in 2019 with their first big time bowl win in over a decade. February starts off with some great events before SWSW and the heart of festival seasons goes into full swing in March.
Carnaval Brasileiro – Feb 9
A Brazilian like Carnival. One of the big local events in Austin each year.
Austin Marathon – Feb 17
Typical there are about 20,000 racers. You can do a 1/2 marathon if you like, or just join the big block party downtown at the finish line.
Austin Oyster Festival – Feb 23
$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.
Austin Music Awards – Feb 23
The locals are showcased in ACL Live at the Moody Theater. One of ATX’s underrated events.
