School is almost out and the first official month of summer is just around the corner! June is full of events Austinites wait for year round. Whether you want to dive in to the best swimming holes in Texas or you’re looking for some fun to kick off the summer season, Austin is the place to be!
The Long Center
One of Austin’s most favored family fun events is returning for its sixth year! The free annual celebration of open play is fun for everyone with live music, trailer food, and of course TONS of bubbles!
6/8/17 – 6/11/17
Travis County Exposition Center and Sixth Street
Bikers from all over will land in downtown Austin for the biggest motorcycle gathering in Texas for rides, parades, and music.
MLK Blvd. and Rosewood Park
Also known as “Freedom Day” or “Emancipation Day,” Austin celebrates Juneteenth with a 2K walk/run, parade floats, entertainment, and a celebration at Rosewood Park.
Austin’s decade-old extravaganza calls on the wackiest of Austinites to dress-up and run, skip, or dance through the streets of downtown Austin to run what is known as the slowest 5K ever. It’s all about fun and entertainment at this “race.”
6/22/17 – 6/25/17
Downtown Luling, Texas
Each year thousands enjoy this timeless Texas tradition. Bring the whole family to enjoy the carnival with kiddie rides, a beer garden, over 15 food booths, arts and crafts competitions, children’s entertainment, live music, a seed spitting contest, classic car show, and much more!
