  • La Pena
    The “Sisters” — Cynthia and Lidia Pérez — were inspired by the South American custom of community gatherings known as Peñas to create something new within their community. Traditionally, Peñas are festivals where local artisans gather to share art, music, poetry, performances, and social commentary. This concept led to the Sisters' creation of the La Peña gallery in 1981 and, along with its establishment, a desire to integrate the arts within the daily life of the community. La Peña's mission is to support artistic development, to provide exposure to emerging local visual artists, musicians, poets and other performing artists, and to offer Austin residents the full spectrum of traditional and contemporary Latino art. La Peña has become a cornerstone of cultural life in central Texas. There are many exhibits throughout the year that feature local artisans and school children, but it is the annual Toma Mi Corazón Exhibit that brings in dozens of pieces of art that are all auctioned in order to help fund the exhibits and community outreach programs.

  • Austin Fashion Week
    The home of SXSW, the ACL Festival, and the world's most urbane population of bats, Austin is more than the creative heart of Texas—it's a global focal point for artists. So it's no surprise that the City of the Violet Crown is home to a show that fashion news site Fashionista called "a fashion week to watch." True to form, Austin Fashion Week isn't the average celebration of blank-faced models, impossibly distant designers, and everything fierce. Instead, the emphasis is on individual personalities and the designers of tomorrow—even the ones that are sitting in the audience. A DIY aesthetic reigns too, from the local brands for sale at the event store Shop 787 to the always popular Mash Up Team competition.

  • The Horn-Ball Texas Tailgaters
    Usually seeing an ambulance at a tailgate is a bad sign—but not at a tailgate thrown by Horn-Ball Texas Tailgaters. That's because at the heart of every Horn-Ball tailgate—on the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and North Congress Avenue—sits a burnt-orange ambulance plastered with the Longhorn logo. Established in 2001, Horn-Ball is no stranger to setting itself apart from other tailgates. Today, rain or shine, the group gathers for every UT home football game, offering its members nearly 3,000 square feet of cool, covered space, an open bar, and plenty of food so nobody has to fill their foam finger with guacamole. Activities and giveaways help fill the minutes before kickoff, at which point satellite TVs relay every big hit and touchdown happening inside Texas Memorial Stadium.
