5 Essential Fall Group Outings in Austin


Autumn in Austin is everything we could ever want in a season: cool weather, football games every weekend, and pumpkin spice beer on tap. With so many fun things to look forward to this fall, it would be a shame not to plan a group outing or two.

Need some inspiration? We’ve handpicked a few autumn events and activities below to please everyone in your group. And if you need an easy way to transport everyone to and from the event, an Austin charter bus rental is one of the best and most reliable options. Everyone can ride together instead of splitting up into multiple vehicles. Yay for spending more time with the ones you love!

Host a Longhorns Tailgate Party

Home to the Longhorns since 1924, Darrell K. Royal Texas Memorial Stadium is the epicenter of college football in Austin. Oversized vehicles may park in Lot 26 on campus, so your group can enjoy a tailgate from the comfort of a private charter bus. You can even request a bus with an on-board restroom to avoid long port-o-potty lines.

Celebrate German Culture at Oktoberfest

All across the city, polka-lovers and pretzel-enthusiasts will gather together for Oktoberfest. From Austoberfest for your human friends to Barktoberfest for your four-legged pals, there are many Bavarian festivals to choose from each year. We can’t offer you a ride for your pets, but we can provide you and your friends with a private shuttle to Oktoberfest celebrations. This way, everyone can enjoy the bier gartens without having to single out a designated driver.

Face Your Fears at Scream Hollow

Imagine the scariest haunted house you’ve ever visited. Now multiply that by four. At Scream Hollow, located just outside Austin, you and your friends can test your limits with four haunted houses across 20 acres. To calm your nerves afterward, head to the Vampire Bar and the Cackling Witch Cafe and Bakery for some spirits (of the alcoholic variety) and fall-themed baked goods.

Experience Dia de Los Muertos in Downtown Austin

Each year, thousands of people flock to downtown Austin for the Mexican holiday of Dia de Los Muertos. Your group can enjoy the colorful Grand Procession parade, traditional Mexican foods, local artist and vendor booths, and more. It’s a memorable way to learn about a vibrant culture and honor loved ones who have passed on.

Stroll Through the Pecan Street Fall Festival

The Pecan Street Fall Festival, which benefits the preservation of the historic Sixth Street Historic District, is a staple of Austin’s fall events. Browse art and handmade goods from hundreds of local artisans, and enjoy family-friendly activities such as a petting zoo and magic shows.
