Brazos Hall

204 East 4th Street Austin, TX 78701

Brazos Hall is a turn-of-the-century warehouse at the corner of 4th and Brazos. With its restored long-leaf pine floors, brick walls and wood rafters, Brazos Hall is a venue unlike any other in the heart of downtown. In addition to the historic main room, Brazos Hall offers a rooftop deck with breathtaking downtown views. Brazos Hall is Austin at its finest.

At The Party

Local Grub

Attention foodies – if you crave local eats over wedge salads and rubbery chicken, climb aboard! Party for the Parks brought the city’s best bites from the likes of Juliet Italian Kitchen, Kemuri Tatsuya, The Peached Tortilla, Chicon and topped off with Launderette for dessert!


Local Sips

Some of the best and brightest booze brands were on hand to sample Austin’s best all while toasting our parks! We had local stars like Austin Cocktails, Austin Eastciders and Zilker Brewing. Thanks for raising your glasses to all things Austin, and showing your parks love!


Local Revelry

NEW this year we added a stellar live experience to our already fantastic silent auction, with packages to pique any interest. And it wouldn’t be a party in the live music capital of the world without the jams – DJ Gatsby spun ACL mixes in the main room and on the roof deck.


Silent Auction

From luxury vacation packages to outdoor equipment, our silent auction has something for everyone.

Live Auction

The Hostess with the mostest, Gayle Stallings, live auctioned some amazing packages, and had a few extra activities planned to keep you on your toes!
