Austin August 2021 Events

Both Austin's Music Scene and Weather are Hot

Average temperature low and high: 74°- 96°
There's so much to see and do in Austin. It is no wonder why the city is such a popular destination for travelers. Unique even among Texas, where all cities behave as mavericks to some extent, Austin is a big city that leaves even long-time residents spoiled by abundance. Imagine all the fresh and new things available for non-travelers. The State of Texas lifted all Covid related restrictions in March, so expect to experience Austin as it was meant to be, with bars and music.

Things to Do in Austin in August

Stubb's BBQ

Stubb's BBQ
Located on Red River Street, Stubb's not only offers some of the best BBQ in Austin, but it is also one of the best music venues in the city for big and small shows alike. It is all but tradition for those attending a concert to enjoy one of Stubb's satisfying BBQ plates, but Stubb's is worth visiting for its food alone.

The Congress Bridge Bats

The Congress Bridge Bats
A favorite place among travelers and locals, the bat colony living under Congress Bridge is massive, housing around 1.5 million freetail bats. August is the best month to watch this uniquely Austin spectacle as those bats leave their colony in droves. It is a one-of-a-kind experience.
