Austin, Texas 2012 Calendar of Events
Austin in 2012: rock out, dig in, run on, or shop ‘til you drop
Austin is a 24-hour town populated by an upstart mix of musicians, tech experts, film pros, athletes and foodies – and our yearly events calendar shows it. The Austin Marathon draws 11,000 runners from around the world. The inaugural Austin Food + Wine Festival is slated to welcome visitors from across the nation and showcase the best innovative cuisine. Fun Fun Fun Fest is known as the nation’s best underground punk and alternative music festival; and Fantastic Fest, which features sci-fi, horror, fantasy and other genre films, has become a favorite of film buffs and celebrities alike. SXSW expands this year with StyleX, an affiliated fashion segment, and the Austin City Limits Music Festival will once again welcome 70,000 fans per day to Zilker Park for performances by more than 100 bands.
