Austin, Texas is a great place to visit for endless reasons. At the forefront of those reasons is an amazing community that you will not find anywhere else. As the holidays come around, the community comes together for celebrations unlike you have ever seen. The Thanksgiving holiday marks the beginning of this awesome period of fun and festivities. Here are three unique things to do in Austin on Thanksgiving weekend that you can ensure the whole family has a blast.

Turkey Trot It Up

For the 27th year in a row comes an Austin classic that you will not want to miss. You will find fun for the whole family at the 27th Annual Thundercloud Subs Turkey Trot. Along with a fun 5k, visitors can enjoy live music, great food, kid’s activities, and much more. Above all else, this event gives you an opportunity to get to know the community here, which is always one of the most fulfilling vacation activities. Find it Thanksgiving Day at 701 W Riverside Dr.

Catch a Show

Nashville may have dubbed itself “The Music City,” but Austin certainly gives it a run for its money. In order to find some great live music, all you need to do is take a walk around town. But as Thanksgiving comes around, so too does a very special presentation of the holiday classic in The Christmas Carol. Austin’s most rockin’ holiday tradition is coming back on the November 21st this year and you are not going to want to miss it. Find it at the ZACH Theater at 202 S Lamar Blvd.

Find a Fun and Delicious Thanksgiving Meal

You can always find something delicious in Austin, but this is especially true when Thanksgiving comes around. For something casual and delicious from an Austin classic, get your Thanksgiving Day meal from 24 Diner, where you will find traditional and innovative approaches to the classics. Finish the meal with the best pumpkin pie in town. Find it at 600 N Lamar Blvd. For something a bit more upscale, check out The Knotty Deck + Bar, and for one-of-a-kind takes on your favorite dinner of the year, check out Threadgill’s.
