There's no better time to explore Austin's culinary scene than during Austin Restaurant Weeks. This annual event is a celebration of the city's diverse and delicious food offerings while benefitting a great cause, and we want to encourage all our chamber members to participate.
What is Austin Restaurant Weeks?
Austin Restaurant Weeks is a culinary event that takes place each year, showcasing some of the city's best restaurants. This year's event runs between September 1-17 and participating restaurants offer special prix-fixe menus or specialty cocktails below their regular prices. Each restaurant that participates donates a portion of its sales to the Central Texas Food Bank. It's a fantastic opportunity to explore new dining experiences, indulge in your favorite cuisines, support local businesses, and help feed those in need in our community.
