127.11 Violet Crown Festival

There is nothing like a family friendly festival on a Saturday in Austin! This year the festival is special because it will also host the grand opening of a new farmer’s market, and it’s no secret that Austinites love a good farmer’s market.

They also will have arts, crafts, vendors, live music and more. One of my favorite things is spin art. I used to love making spin art, and I for one am glad to hear that it’s making a comeback!

They will have roasted corn, sausage wraps, Amy’s Ice Cream, Elsi’s Restaurat and Hat Creek Burgers! I have been hearing nothing but great things about Hat Creek, so give them a try.

This annual event is a great showcase for all the local art and food Austin has to offer, and it should be a great stop on your Saturday!

Also, don’t forget that the Kentucky Derby runs today at 3 p.m.!

I am a realtor here in Austin, and clients are always asking for suggestions on what to do around town. So, I thought I would blog about my experiences, recommendations and what you have to do before you can call yourself a true Austinite.
