Austin Is Getting An Affordable Yacht Week This Summer

Austin Yacht Week is going to be bigger than ever later this summer.

Austin residents know the best way to cool off from the Texas summer sun is to head to Travis Lake for a day full of floating, swimming and hanging with friends. That's why you'll want to head to this year's Austin Yacht Week on August 16th-17th! It will be bigger and better than ever with a weekend full of parties, free drinks, and a giant cruising party boat. Beat the summer heat with 2 days of constant fun at the local Yacht Week in Austin. 

The Austin Yacht Week gets bigger and more popular every year. It started out as a small event that was spread only by word of mouth and ended up growing into an official, huge event in only a couple of years! The name of the event is clearly a spin-off of the biggest yacht festival in the entire world, the Yacht Week, but they made it more accessible, affordable and local for Texas boat fans and partiers.

The crazy yacht festival will feature 3 main events during August 16th and 17th of this year. Friday night will be their huge house party for all guests to hang out, mingle, and get to know their fellow boating friends before the main event begins the next day. The BYOB house party's location is still to be determined, so stay tuned for their big reveal. 

Then comes the exciting part of the weekend. From 10 AM to 3 PM guests will be able to board one of the giant party boats on Lake Travis for unlimited free drinks, trending music, water slides, and tons of water floaties. Tons of snacks, drinks, and dancing will be on board the party boat so get ready for some nonstop fun in the sun!

The party doesn't stop there: there will be a pregame and after party in downtown Austin once the swimming and boating come to an end in the late afternoon. The weekend will be jam-packed with mingling, dancing, and drinking.
