Hot Luck Festival

May 24 - May 27

Hot Luck Festival is a live music and food festival in Austin, Texas, brought together by James Beard Award winner Aaron Franklin, Guerilla Suit principal James Moody, and Mike Thelin, co-founder of Feast Portland. Hot Luck is inspired by friendly tailgates, family reunions, get-togethers, and potlucks of our past and present. It is a fun, chef-driven, celebration of fire, food, music, and camaraderie. An a la carte eat-with-your-fingers picnic and party experience that highlights open-pit feats of culinary know-how, and music in your ears that is as thoughtfully created as the food on your plate. Come hungry, thirsty, and bring your dancin’ boots.
