Fête & Fête*ish

Austin’s Best Black Tie is Back!

Save-the-date for February 19, 2022 @ the (new) Austin Marriott Downtown. Check back soon for more details!


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. Each year, 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 Fete’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. This year, join guests in an electric phosphorescent forest 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.
