We’ve already highlighted a bunch of F1 events happening in Austin, but this one will really rev your engine! Red Bull is bringing to life an activation in the heart of Austin’s East Side with the first-ever Red Bull Austin Fan Zone at Fair Market Presented by Cash App.
Located at 1100 E 5th Street, the event will feature exciting Oracle Red Bull Racing attractions such as the Pit Stop Challenge, a static Red Bull Racing Car, Red Bull Racing Simulators, and official Oracle Red Bull Racing and Scuderia AlphaTauri merchandise. Local food trucks will also be on hand, with full bar service complete with Red Bull cocktails, and a Formula One watch party on Saturday for qualifying and Sunday for the main event.
A variety of talent will be on hand to keep things lively throughout the weekend. Austin’s own Dana Cortez will serve as the master of ceremonies for the weekend. Heading the Dana Cortez Show, she is one of only a handful of female radio hosts and the first Latina to have a syndicated morning show. As a second-generation Mexican-American, Cortez’s brand is based on her authentic personality, music, pop-culture knowledge, and stand-out fashion style. Cortez’s husband, DJ Automatic, who also serves as executive producer and co-host of the Dana Cortez Show, will be spinning records all weekend and keeping the vibe alive. “Auto” is also the official DJ for the Phoenix Suns.
Saturday night will include a free concert headlined by Loud Luxury at 9:30 p.m. A Canadian music production and DJ duo consisting of Andrew Fedyk and Joe Depace, Loud Luxury are a certified Diamond (10x Platinum) artist in Canada, multi-Platinum in Australia, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark, U.K., and the U.S., and Platinum in the Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden.
The Red Bull Austin Fan Zone at Fair Market is happening on October 22 and 23 and is free to the public.
