Spring is almost here! Crosswinds has many new homes in Kyle, TX which are just around the corner from of one of the most exciting cities – Austin. Crosswinds is sharing a list of some fun happenings and things to do in Austin this summer!

Derby in the City

Nothing says summer like a music festival! On May 6, Austin American Statesman will be hosting the 3rd annual Derby in the City Music Festival. Grab your favorite derby hat and dress to the nines while enjoying the most “exciting two minutes in sports” on the jumbotron and listening to fantastic live music. Artists performing include Citizen Cope, Sweet Spirit, Black Pistol Fire, The Watters and Los Coast.


Grab the kids and prepare for a lot of bubbles! On Saturday, June 3, Long Center will be hosting the 6th Annual Bubblepalooza, a spectacular summer event for the whole family. Families can enjoy live music from artists such as Hey Lolly Band, Biscuit Brothers and Saddle Sores. Visitors can also chow down at the many food trucks or cool off with snow cones from Kona Ice. In addition to the good eats and beautiful music there will be various activities to take part in such as chalk art, face painting, ambulance tours with St. David’s Healthcare and of course, bubble-making foam pits!

Circus 1903 – The Golden Age of Circus

Another must-see this summer is Circus 1903 – The Golden Age of Circus. Visit Dell Hall June 6th-8th for an unforgettable experience. This event is the brainchild of the same production team that created the world’s largest magic show, The Illusionist and the award-winning puppeteers of the show War Horse. See Elephants take the ring in a way you have never seen before, as well as unique, dangerous circus acts never before seen!

17th Annual Soul to Sole Tap Festival

All you dancers, shuffle-step your way to the 17th Annual Soul to Sole Tap Festival at Rollins Studio Theatre on June 16th and 17th. This rhythmic festival will be hosted by Tapestry Dance Company, North America’s only full-time, professional, repertory tap dance company.
