The Downtown Austin Alliance Foundation will host the fifth annual Austin’s Birthday Bash, which will take place over five days at Republic Square this August, beginning on Saturday, August 13 and ending on Sunday, August 28.
The family-friendly event is a yearly community celebration that commemorates the anniversary of when the first lots of land were auctioned under the Auction Oaks in what is now Republic Square. The multi-weekend party will feature live music, creative arts, food and people who capture the true spirit and authenticity of Austin.
The celebration continues with The People’s Market presented by Frida Friday ATX (powered by Las Ofrendas) on Friday, August 26, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The market honors inclusivity and diversity as it’s Austin’s first and only intersectional BIPOC, Queer, Latinx, and local creatives-centered mercado, featuring over 40 vendors.
