This weekend, we wrapped up another amazing Creek Show, with a record-breaking 50,000 Austinites enjoying locally produced light-based art along Waller Creek!
Featuring family-friendly fun for all ages, the event offered a glimpse into the future of Waller Creek and what an active and inclusive green space will mean our community.
Visitors experienced innovative installations and snapped thousands of pics while enjoying live music, a Kid Zone, and interactive activities. Waller Creek – and the newly renovated Symphony Square – were once again alive with the spirit of Austin.
We have big plans for the next Creek Show and expanding our free community programming in 2019 and we need you to make it happen! Help us raise $30,000 by December 31 to light up the creek with free, inspiring, and engaging events.
Donations made by New Year’s Eve will be generously matched dollar-for-dollar by Still Water Foundation to help reach our goal! Every contribution counts, so make your generous gift today. Donate $100 or more by December 31st to receive a pair of limited edition Creek Show socks!
