Summer Fun in the Sun

Enjoy family-friendly activities while you give that sweet tooth a break—ice cream eating, frozen treat making and popsicle stick sculpture contests for all ages; activities like rock wall climbing, DIY water guns, a dunking booth, yard games and more; live music acts; a movie in the park; savory food options (to soak up all that ice cream!) and adult beverage options for those over 21.  It’ll even be fun for Fido!

Crown the Best of ATX!

Take part in judging unique local flavors in the “Best of ATX Frozen Treats” Contest*—where you’ll rate flavors from our frozen treat partners to crown the “Fan Fave Flave” (favorite flavor). Your votes along with the picks from our panel of celebrity judges will crown the “Best of ATX Frozen Treat.”
* Get out there and vote! The Fan Fave Flave contest starts a week before the event (August 5), so be prepared to do some pre-event reconnaissance.

Songs of Summer

Dance all day to live music on the main stage. Press play on the ultimate Summer playlist curated by local Austin musicians.

Summer Movie in the Park
