by on Jan.08, 2010, under Austin

Let’s face it, January is usually a slow month with little going on. However, Austin isn’t your typical place to live. It is filled with creative people who love to get out and have a good time, so here is a look at some can’t miss events during the month of January in Austin.

The annual Tenant Art show in Austin is your chance to get your hands on amazing art, all valued at under $500. Consider this show the natural follow up to the art bazaars from last month. You may even find some of the same pieces priced for even less than you saw during the holidays. The event is held at the Guadalupe Arts Center and is fun for the whole family. Last year, more than 40 artists participated and there was everything from sculpting to painting to handmade jewellery. Find your perfect piece of art at this awesome event.

No matter how chilly it may be outside, the Westlake Farmers Market is going on rain or shine every Saturday at Westlake High School. Get everything from fresh veggies to fresh coffee and more at this wonderful market. There is also a good selection of crafts, handmade soap, flowers, local and exotic plants and more. Get better deals than you would ever get in the supermarket at this wonderful farmer’s market.

In nearby Round Rock, you can go on an Artisan Stroll every second Sunday from 10 AM to 3 PM. Get to know all of the local shop owners in beautiful Round Rock and sample some of the best food the town has to offer. You’ll taste handmade food that you’ll love and you may make friends that will last a lifetime. Meet across from the library on Main St. in downtown Round Rock.

While college baseball may not have the same attraction of basketball or football, the University of Texas is one of the best schools in the nation and they will be playing home games throughout the month of February. Tickets are cheap and the action is hot. Come out and see the Longhorns battle the likes of New Mexico, Texas Pan-American and more.
