When I first came to Austin this was one of the first fun runs I ever did, I’ve always said that there’s really not much “fun” about a fun run, but this one is totally different. Along the race there are tons of fun stops – it’s really not like anything you have done before.

They’re incorporating the lower drive of the Long Center and putting trucks down there as well. This means more seating, more trucks, shorter lines!

This year there will be vendors! They’ve carefully selected three local vendors to add to the experience of the event. These include Kong Screen Printing, Typewriter Rodeo and Rocket Electrics.

  • Event-Specific Screen Prints
  • Custom on-site poems written on incredibly cool vintage typewriters (paid for by donations)
  • Test rides on Rocket Electric bikes

Summer can officially start! After a rain delay, Blues On The Green will make it’s 25th season debut this evening with a special Antone’s All Star Review hosted by Jimmie Vaughan with a surprise guest. Rumors are swirling and it’s pretty much the worst kept secret in Austin that the special guest is Gary Clark Jr.

Blues on the Green is Austin’s longest running FREE music series. Blues on the Green veterans know the drill, but for first time attendees here is the rundown: You can bring in two factory sealed water bottles, blankets, chairs and your dog (must be on a leash at all times). The number one piece of advice I would say, is ride youe bike /carpool, uber, lyft, take the bus or walk if you can. Parking and traffic around Zilker tonight can cause quite the headache.

If you’re new to Austin, definitely plan to go at least once this summer. It really is a rite of passage for living in this great city.

Blues on the Green lovers  — Text “Blues” to 29217 to join the Blues on the Green alert club and get access to exclusive information and contests.

2015 Line-Up:
June 3 – Antone’s All Star Review Hosted by Jimmie Vaughan
June 24 – Riders Against The Storm, Shakey Graves
July 22 – Walker Lukens, Bob Schneider
August 5 – Max Frost, Jamestown Revival
