Shake off the winter blues with springtime fun! Austin in March is jam-packed with fun events nearly every weekend. One of the biggest events of the year, South by Southwest (or "South by" to locals), invades Austin for two weeks of music, film, and tech innovations. At the same time, the Austin Rodeo kicks off with a carnival, rodeo competitions, and nightly concerts. Don't miss the chance to tour spectacular homes in the Austin area through the Modern Home Tour. Give back to the Austin community by volunteering for It's My Park Day or walking in the Illuminate Austin Walk. There's something for everyone to enjoy this March in Austin!
