Austin Parks Foundation (APF) is throwing its beloved Party for the Parks this year, and they have figured out how to make the whole thing virtual and it actually sounds seriously fun. This annual fundraiser celebrates and supports our city’s parks and green spaces and is always a good time. Guests this year can expect  a special evening with music, food, drinks, and more—all without leaving. the house!

In celebration of Austin Parks Foundation’s mission to connect people with parks, Party for the Parks at Home will feature an evening of local fare and tasty sips at home, while raising much-needed funds for our city’s parks, trails, and green spaces. A special to-go culinary experience for the event will be provided by Austin’s award-winning chef team from Emmer & Rye, Chefs Kevin Fink and Tavel Bristol-Joseph.

Tickets are on sale now and range from $125-$175. In addition to dinner, all ticketed guests (21+) will get beer from Zilker Brewing, including APF’s very own collaboration Parks & Rec Pale Ale, and wine from Union Wine Co, JuneShine hard kombucha, and sparkling water from Big Swig.

Guests purchasing a GA+ ticket will get a curated cocktail Funbox from Craven & Co featuring signature event cocktails made with Tito’s Vodka. All ticketed guests will also receive new and unique APF swag and will pick up all of their party items at a curbside pickup party at Austin Sunshine Camps in Zilker Park.
