April is the perfect time to visit Austin. Plenty of gorgeous weather, friends and fun things to do, all month long. While we have a great list of major events happening around town, take a look at some of our more exclusive, insider tips on what to do this month in town:
On April 1st I visited Community Nights - Step into Spring, presented by the City of Austin. Community Night is the new and expanded Austin New Year celebration (which was canceled this year due to implement weather) and is now free, family-friendly events celebrating the arrival of spring! No joke! (see what I did there??) Community Night is from 4-8 p.m. and special programming begins at 4:30 p.m. Admission is by donation only. Entry is based on a first-come, first-served basis, and you can find out about more April and spring events here. - Kristen Maurel, Film, Music and Marketing Coordinator
Art City Austin, April 25-26, is my one of my favorite events of the year. Stroll around downtown Austin to enjoy juried art, live music and local food vendors.
