Hot Summer Time In The ATX!

 You still have awhile until the kiddos go back to school (although at this point, maybe you’re wishing school would just start already. Anyone? Just me?). Luckily, there are plenty of exciting things happening in Austin this August to end the summer with a bang. Check out the list below. Whether you love movies, food, music, or outdoor activities— there’s something for everyone in ATX.   

Austin Ice Cream Festival . Nothing says summer more than a big, cold ice cream cone. This is the ice cream festival’s 11th annual event, and it’s never a disappointment. They’ll be scooping up local, regional, and national flavors all day at Fiesta Gardens along Lady Bird Lake. And that’s not all: there will also be live music, a rock climbing wall, a dunk tank, games, and more.  

2. Blues on the Green . Love live music? You already know that you live in one of the best cities in the U.S. for it! On August 2nd pack your blanket, dog, and picnic basket and head over to Zilker Park for this large free concert. This year is Zilker Park’s 100th anniversary, so enjoy the homegrown music and know that you’re part of history today.  
Capital City Black Film Festival . Film lovers, this is your event. The Capital City Black Film Festival is back for its fifth annual event August 17th-20th. This festival brings together talented African Americans in the media and film industry for a weekend jam-packed with seminars, parties, screenings, and more. You’ll get to check out documentaries, short films, features, and music videos from a diverse array of independent filmmakers. They don’t call Austin “one of the best places to live and work as a moviemaker” for nothing!  

Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival . It may seem counterintuitive to eat spicy food during the summer…but hot sauce die-hards don’t care. If you’re one of them, join the Austin Chronicle for one of the largest hot sauce festivals in the world on August 20th at Fiesta Gardens. Bonus: this event raises money for the Central Texas Food Bank!      Austin is a pretty amazing place to live, isn’t it? If you’re thinking about buying or selling a home in the area, or know someone in need of a real estate agent, let me know! I’d love to help you (or them!) out.   Happy summer!
