Party for the Parks

September 30th, 2020

Republic Square Park

We Put the “Fun” in Fundraiser

Party for the Parks is the biggest parks fun-raiser in town. In celebration of Austin Parks Foundation’s mission to connect people + parks, we host an evening of local bites, tasty sips and great company. This year’s event will be smaller, to ensure social-distancing, while we raise much-needed funds for our city’s parks, trails and green spaces. We’ll be ready to deliver a great experience at home if the situation evolves to prevent us from being together in person. Sponsorships are available now!

Party for the Parks is the biggest parks fun-raiser in town.

The event raises operating support for all aspects of APF’s programming and park investments.

Why Do We Party for the Parks?

Given Austin Park Foundation’s 25-year-commitment to improving parks, we were ready when Austin had to shelter in place. The importance and benefit of parks has never been more evident than during this pandemic. Proceeds from Party for the Parks will ensure APF’s work continues in caring for Austin’s nearly 300 parks, including park renovations like Georgian Acres and Little Walnut Creek, continuous park care and community events. Help us raise much-needed funds by sponsoring today!
