Event Description:

With Austin’s reputation for being the Live Music Capital of the World, we could only think of one thing that might add to that status – MARGARITAS!!  This year, the Austin Margarita Festival will grace the downtown area, just across the Congress Avenue Bridge, on the Austin American-Statesman’s riverside property.  The 21+, one day event is a reflection of Austin’s plethora of eclectic styles and artistry, only this diversity shows through in the 20+ Margarita Flavors, including the Bourbon St. Hurricane, Grapefruit Groupie and Jalapeno Pepper.  Served frozen or on the rocks, the endless choice of mouthwatering margaritas can be enjoyed against the backdrop of Austin’s beautiful skyline.  Adding to the cool vibe of this Margarita Mecca, you can sip to the sounds of live bands and DJs, and to the complement of great food!  You’ve heard the tagline, “Keep Austin Weird”.  Well, Austinites, on October 20th, 2018, you’ll hear a new adage – “Keep the margaritas flowin’ and the good times goin’!”

Austin Margarita Festival is encouraging all festival attendees to wear pink to the festival, and drink the Grapefruit Groupie Margarita – the official GoPinkATX margarita of the festival. For every Grapefruit Groupie Margarita served at the event, a portion of the proceeds will go to the Austin, Texas chapter of the Sisters Network Inc., a breast cancer awareness organization.
