Get one of these Big Weekend Calendars for everyone on your list


I’m going to reveal to you one of my signature gifts for the past two years – the Austin Big Weekend Calendar. I first came across this calendar at the City Hall gift shop. I bought a few then, and another few last year, and am ready to buy more this year. They’re great gifts for people who love to get out and about in Austin.

What makes them so great? Two things. First, they list just about every major event in Central Texas, more than 250 in all. If there’s something fun going on, it’s already on this calendar. Never forget it’s Carnaval Brasileiro weekend again!

Second – and just as cool – 10 percent of the profits go to Keep Austin Beautiful, the local nonprofit that regularly engages the community in environmental projects that keep our parks and waters clean.

But wait, there’s more. The calendar’s made in Austin, features all original photography (no stock art), and costs about $15. Where can I get some, you say? Buy the calendar online or pick it up at BookPeople, Waterloo Records, Whole Foods, HEB and many other Austin stores.

(There are lots of other ways to give and get involed with Keep Austin Beautiful, whether you’re looking to make an end-of-year donation or seeking a volunteering opportunity for your family or group. Learn more on their site.)
