Austin Community Events

All Month Long – Strawberry Picking at Sweet Berry Farm (Marble Falls, TX)

Visit the strawberry patch! No admission or parking fee, simply pay for the fruit you pick or the activities you wish to participate in. The closer you can get to ‘opening’ hour – the fewer the folks and the largest supply of ripe berries.  Thursday is the best day of the week to come (we are closed Wednesday). GPS can have trouble finding the farm, so make sure you follow their directions.

Friday, April 8th – Sunday, April 10th – Revival Cycles Hand-built Motorcycles Show (Austin, TX)

As our collective existence slips further into digital abstraction, we at the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show believe something has been lost and it is time to revive the culture of physical craftsmanship. Although in today’s modern mass-produced world few young people are taught how to do physical work or are encouraged to embrace a trade, there remains a universal attraction to the beauty that can only be formed by human hands. The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show is an inspiring showcase of works from builders and craftsmen that combine knowledge, skill, and ingenuity to create one-of-a-kind truly hand-built machines.

Admission $40 for 3-Day Pass.
