Austin, Texas: May Festival Season

Although Austin, Texas is wonderful to pay a visit to any time of year, the month of May retains some extra unique activities that you should check out if you get the opportunity. These events continue to develop in size and popularity each year. No matter if you enjoy art, wine, or just a festive atmosphere in general, make travel plans to be in Austin throughout the month.

The Pecan Street Festival has grown over the years and has now turned into the biggest art festival in the city. Over 300,000 visitors walk the roads of Austin during this festival, watching neighborhood and renowned artists generate and display their works. Aside from the booths of artists, there are also food booths, games, and amusement for the entire family. Add Austin's large quantity of excellent eating places to the local mix, and you quickly see why this two-day festival draws such a group.

Just about every Memorial Day weekend, the city hosts the Austin Wine Festival. This three-day festival is an opportunity for several nearby wineries to display their special goods and be exposed to the neighborhood. Even though this festival has only been happening for a few years, its upscale atmosphere and distributors serving gourmet sweets are making it a large draw among wine enthusiasts, not only domestically, but state-wide.

The largest Hispanic festival in central Texas takes place Memorial Day weekend around Austin as well. The Fiesta Amistad takes place at Old Settlers' Association a couple of minutes north of town. The event is family-based, with activities, music, food, car shows, and plenty of kids games to keep the entire family busy. The selection of things to see and do, as well as a look into the Hispanic community and its beliefs make it worth a visit.
