Thank you for your interest in Fête and fête*ish 2022! In light of Austin’s current Stage 5 COVID-19 risk level, the arc of the current Omicron surge and the advice of our medical advisor, Fête and fête*ish will move forward from its original date of February 19 to a new date and location.

We hope you can join us as we celebrate Ballet Austin’s upcoming production of Swan Lake!

Fête/fête*ish 2022 presented by 

Saturday, April 23
W Austin


An esteemed brand in its own right, Ballet Austin’s Fête, named one of Austin’s “Best Black Tie Events” year after year, is one of the most anticipated fundraiser galas in Austin, synonymous with elegance, excitement, and innovation. Each year, Fête welcomes Austin’s most notorious and respected arts patrons and community leaders to to mix, mingle, dine, dance and celebrate the magic of the arts in Austin. Our goal is to raise funds that benefit Ballet Austin’s mission to provide exceptional artistic programming, arts education, and access for the entire Central Texas Community.


fête*ish is Fête’s late-night revelry and companion party, which has made its own mark on the Austin social calendar. Where Fête is elegant and regal, fête*ish is the scratch on the record –  a time to play with the more mischievous elements of the theme. The parties combine late in the evening so all experience the surprises fête*ish has to offer. Join guests for a surprise around every corner and to dance the night away!

Proceeds from Fête and fête*ish support Ballet Austin’s mission of providing exceptional artistic programming and arts education to the Central Texas community.
