The Blanton Block Party is BACK!
Join us for a free day-to-night community festival to kick off Spring and celebrate the big changes on our block. Explore the epic exhibition “Words/Matter: Latin American Art and Language at the Blanton” and be inspired by the creative ways artists have merged visual art and language.
The Blanton Block Party is the perfect fusion of live music and world-class art, providing outdoor family art activities, local food, and tours throughout the day.
LIVE MUSIC: Austin music favorites including *Black Fret grant recipients will perform throughout the day.
