Austin Parks Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to providing high-quality parks for every Austinite for more than 30 years. Party for the Parks is our biggest fundraising event of the year, helping us provide improvements and innovative programming in parks, trails and green spaces across Austin, TX.


Party for the Parks isn’t just a night of fun – it also raises critical funds for our local parks, trails and green spaces. Attendees can participate in a number of fun-raising opportunities throughout the event, from games like the Tipsy Toss and Gift Card Gamble, to bidding on amazing experiences in the silent and live auction.



We invite you to get involved and join us on our mission to enhance people’s lives by making our public parks, trails and green spaces better. Sponsorship packages offer a variety of perks – from VIP hospitality, promotional activities, signage and effective marketing exposure – customized meet your specific needs.
