With South by Southwest, Rodeo Austin and the Texas Relays taking over this month, March is a great time to call Austin home! Every weekend in March is jam-packed with events. Kick the month off by flying a kite at the Zilker Kite Festival, or celebrate Texas Independence Day on March 2nd. There are plenty of opportunities to stay active this month, with the Rosedale Ride and the Round Rock Swim and Run r-Aqua-thon. No matter what genre of music you prefer, you can find a festival in Austin this March with your favorite musicians.
