The Junior League of Austin presents the 2nd annual Austin Entertains event at Fair Market, February 22 from 6 p.m.-10 p.m. The evening event will combine tastings from the women who are leading Austin’s culinary scene, libations from local bartenders, and entertainment from SOUTHTOWN. Every Austin Entertains ticket purchased helps The Junior League of Austin carry forth its mission of developing the potential of women and improving the Austin community, by providing essential funding and volunteers to programs such as Coats for Kids and FIT- Food in Tummies, along with more than 35 local community non-profits.


This year’s Austin Entertains features more than 20 female chefs and bartenders, and The Junior League of Austin anticipates more than 400 attendees. There is a force of more than 200 League volunteers working behind the scenes to help staff the event, ensuring that no detail is overlooked and every attendee has the ultimate culinary experience. We offer two ticket options for the night: the VIP experience costs $150 and will allow early access starting at 6 p.m., valet, bottomless bubbles, and a special gift. General admission cost is $85, and access begins at 7 p.m. Both experiences include tastings from our amazing chefs and libations from our mixologists. Guests will also be entertained, have a chance to bid on wonderful auction items and participate in door prize games.
