Celebrating Safely in Austin

The holidays may look a little bit different this year, but plenty of classic Austin institutions are still offering ways to celebrate. Together or apart, we’ve put together a few of our favorite ways to ring in the holiday season!

Ballet Austin’s The Nutcracker

Ballet Austin is offering on-demand viewing of the 2019 stage production of The Nutcracker from December 12th through December 20th, with all proceeds directly benefitting Ballet Austin.

Additional donations offer access to behind the scenes featurettes, holiday recipes, dance lessons, and more!

Austin Trail of Lights

Adapted to a drive-thru event you can enjoy this classic Zilker Park light display in the comfort of your own bubble!

Private virtual parties are also being offered, as well as a virtual version of their yearly Fun-Run.

Blue Genie Art Bazaar

This year Blue Genie is offering several ways to shop for local art and gifts! In-person shopping is available with an online reservation, and online shopping is also available for pickup or shipping.

They have also introduced a new personal shopper service and virtual shopping experience! All services are available through December 24th, leaving plenty of time for last minute gift-seeking!

We hope you have a safe, happy, and healthy holiday!
