Best Things Happening in Austin This March


March is one of the busiest months in Austin. Most people probably think SXSW when they think of March in Austin but there are plenty of other great things to do this month and we’re here to tell you all about them!

The Best Events Happening in Austin this March

Rodeo Austin

March 10 through 25 | 9100 Decker Lake Road
Rodeo Austin hosts one of America’s top ProRodeos every year. In addition, it has action-packed competitions, a carnival and fair, shopping, food, and a variety of other special attractions. Finally, they have a great live music lineup! Some of this year’s lineup includes Aaron Watson, Flo Rida, Randy Rogers Band, and Sugar Ray. Find the full lineup and plan your visit by visiting RodeoAustin.com

St. Patrick’s Day

March 17 | All Over Austin
St. Patrick’s Day takes over the city, well sort of. The holiday is always during SXSW so it’s hard to navigate but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of great ways to celebrate while avoiding SXSW. There are plenty of Irish pubs and pub crawls happening unrelated to the festival. Furthermore, the official Austin St. Patrick’s Day festival is set to return in 2024 so stay tuned.

Tuesday Twilights

Starting March 21 | Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, 4801 La Crosse Avenue
Every Tuesday from March to May, the Wildflower Center will be staying open late! Which makes it a great destination for date nights, picnics with friends, or even just an after-work adventure. In addition to staying open late, they will have live music from local musicians, various local food trucks, and take-and-walk adult beverages. The Wildflower Center makes the perfect backdrop for any occasion. Get details by visiting www.wildflower.org
