June, Austin Style: A Month of Festivals, Food, and Fun

Average temperature low and high: 22°-38°
When June rolls around, Austin dons its party hat. Blessed by a thermostat that knows only tropical vibes, it chills at 72.1°F and turns up the heat to 91.2°F. This is when Austin throws a festival potluck. You've got everything from the TV-binge-worthy ATX Television Festival to the cinematic smorgasbord of the Austin Asian American Film Festival. And let's not forget Juneteenth, Austin's tribute to African American heritage, which is less a commemoration and more a city-wide party. With weather that plays nice and events that play loud, Austin in June is a magnet for the fun-seekers and sun-seekers alike.
