The Domain is teaming up once again with LiveMom.com, Spare the Rock and Spoil the Child to bring the Austin community Rock + Read, a family-friendly music and book festival filled with live performances, storytelling, prizes and more.
On Saturday, March 16th from 2 – 6 p.m., families are invited to welcome spring with a FREE outdoor festival on The Lawn, near iPic Theaters. With live music performances by Red Yarn (2:20 p.m.), Riders Against the Storm (3:20 p.m.), The Not Its! (4:20 p.m.) and Koo Koo Kanga Roo (5:20 p.m.), children and parents won’t be able to keep their toes from tapping.
In between music sets, local and national children’s book authors Scott Fitzgerald (2 p.m.), Jason Gallaher (3 p.m.) and Kat Kronenberg (4 p.m.) will take to the stage for live readings from their books. Join the authors for book signings and a craft after the live reading in the Do512Family Book Tent.
In addition to musical performances and storytelling, Rock + Read will also have a number of exciting activities to keep the little ones entertained. Kids will enjoy a cookie decorating station from Baked by Amy’s, jumping on a Springfree Trampoline, a bike course with Buddy Pegs and Woombikes, a punk rock hair-do station with Cookie Cutters Haircuts for Kids (Arboretum), DIY crafts with MyMusicRX, and more. The fun just doesn’t stop at Rock + Read on The Lawn!
“We are thrilled to welcome families out to our fourth annual Rock + Read festival,” said Monica Esparza, Director of Marketing at The Domain. “All of these activities, combined with the outstanding selection of stores offered at The Domain, create a lasting impression and unique social experience for the community to come together and celebrate.”
