East Side Fair
Celebrating Safer Stronger Community
The East Austin Rotary Club and East Austin Weed and Seed Community Initiative are organizing a community collaborative for an annual block party taking place in Eastside neighborhoods and intersections that have the potential to become cultural epicenters through beautification and increased business and community activity. As our premier festival, we are planning a block party at the corner of 12th and Chicon in April 2010, featuring local businesses, music, community performances, food, and art that highlight the unique world cultures represented in East Austin. The centerpiece of the event is the unveiling of an outdoor art piece that will beautify as well as highlight the unique historic and cultural significance of the place.
We aim to create an environment where Eastside neighborhoods, businesses, and residents can come together and celebrate all things East Austin, nurture neighborhood pride, and empower the people of this community to beautify and enjoy their public spaces.
We are looking for volunteers who are passionate about East Austin to help organize this festival. We are in particular need of experienced leadership roles and recommendations. If you would like more information about this event or are interested in helping an any way, please visit our website or join us at our of our weekly planning meetings. All experience levels and ideas welcome.
Weekly meetings are every Friday from Noon to 1pm at the Central East Austin APD Substation located at 812 Springdale Rd. 78702 in the conference room.
