Austin Entertains


February 28, 2019 at Fair Market

The Junior League of Austin will host its 3rd annual Austin Entertains event Thursday, February 28th, 2019 at Fair Market. More details will follow soon on all of our partners and tickets, but expect this year’s event to raise the bar with its food and beverage offerings, guest experience, and overall entertainment to help raise funds for the Austin community.

Last year’s sold-out event featured more than 25 female chefs and bartenders, four wineries, four breweries, numerous food and beverage sponsors including; Ranger Creek Whiskey, Deep Eddy Vodka, Dulce Vida Tequila, Cat Tequila, Fara Coffee, Sway Water and Whole Foods; and most importantly, more than 450 attendees. Austin Entertains took over Fair Market, where guests mingled and tasted the flavors of Austin. Locals, Southtown and DJ Diesel, had everyone up on their feet throughout the night, while a ring toss game and silent auction raised even more funds to support The Junior League of Austin’s mission and community partners, including FIT – Food in Tummies.

Thank you to our sponsors for their generous support. If you are interested in sponsorship opportunities, please contact The Junior League of Austin Fund Development Vice President at
