How to Celebrate Thanksgiving 2020
Thanksgiving is a time to gather and enjoy a bountiful meal together. As we approach the holidays with safety and thoughtfulness, we have curated a list of things to do, eat, cook, watch, and a few outdoor socially distanced activities to partake, safely.
We wish you all a healthy and happy Thanksgiving!
The Last Waltz
On Thanksgiving Day 1976, the Band played a final concert in its original lineup with era-defining cameos (Bob Dylan, Muddy Waters, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, the Staple Singers, and more)
4+ decades later, The Last Waltz still stands as a musical monument, and the annual local celebration re-creates the performance with Austin’s own all-star roll call of artists each taking on a specific role in the concert.
