Creative Action hosts free community events throughout the year. These fun, interactive programs take place at Creative Action and Central Market on North Lamar.

Please check our events calendar below for updates.

Our annual community events include:

Kids Ball (October 28, 2017)

Each October we partner with Central Market and the White Ghost Shivers to offer a free, interactive event with treats, kid- and family-friendly activities, costume-making, and dancing as we celebrate kindness, and creativity!

Friend Fest (February 10, 2018)

This free family event held near Valentine’s Day includes our signature Friendship Parade, crafting activities, live music and cookie decorating at Central Market.

Big Hair Country Fair (February 24, 2018)

Our signature fundraising event, which is unlike any event in Austin! Dine on all you can eat comfort food and carnival treats from local vendors and enjoy signature drinks from our sponsors Deep Eddy Vodka, Mighty Swell, High Brew Coffee, Waterloo Sparking Water, and Austin Eastciders!

Youth Arts Fest (May 12, 2018)

This one-day festival celebrates the art created by middle school and high school students in Creative Action’s programs. Exhibitions include theater, paintings, photography, music, and film.

Community Art Sundays

Each month we celebrate community through free arts workshops, performances, live-music and active learning experiences for all ages at Creative Action. With support from sponsors like H-E-B, Oskar Blues Brewery, Bennu Coffee, and KIND and our Community Partners such as Sustainable Food Center, ThinkBilingual, and Texans for the Arts, we connect community and art to create a joyful and meaningful experience for all.
