Honk! TX is a festival that celebrates marching bands and the community-rooted union of art, activism, and music.
The first Honk event took place in Massachusetts in 2006 and after attending Honk events there and around the country, Austin’s own Minor Mishap Marching Band began organizing HONK!TX here in Austin.
The three day celebration features twenty community street bands performing in everyday locations where the line between crowd and performers dissolves.
On the third day of the festival, bands marched from Pan Am Park in East Austin to Republic Square Park.
