FESTIVAL ICON

We all know it takes a certain amount of weird to fuel our beloved city of Austin. So think of the Keep Austin Weird Fest + 5K as the ultimate celebration and toast to Austin—to what it is, to what its becoming and to what it will always be, WEIRD.

Join us from 2:00PM to 10:00PM Saturday, June 27 on the green at The Long Center. There will be live music, good eats, and plenty of Weird Austin attractions!

Bring your strangest, wildest, most outrageous costume and you could win a full year of free Amy’s Ice Cream!

Bizarre oddities are coming to this year’s fest! We’re introducing The Keep Austin Weird Sideshow. From a big toe wrestling contest to a smelly chamber, The Sideshow is a bevy of ridiculously eccentric activities you’ll only find at the Keep Austin Weird Fest and 5K.

Sideshow Attractions
  • Big Toe Wrestling – One, two, three, four…we declare a toe war! Step right up to the Toedium, interlock your oversized toelanges and see who will seize the title of Toe Wrestling Master.

  • Smelly Chamber – Enter into a smelly dimension beyond that which is known to man. Inhale the scents of Texas sunbaked tuna fish, week-old bat guano and last season’s thrown-out crawfish shells. How long can you survive in the Smelly Chamber?

  • More Keep Austin Weird Sideshow attractions to awaken your inner freak to come!
