Austin is consistently ranked as one of the fastest-growing cities in the country. High-rises have mushroomed, and housing prices have skyrocketed, yet enclaves dedicated to preserving the city’s cherished slogan, “Keep Austin Weird,” are alive and well. Quirky antique stores sit adjacent to upscale boutiques, country dance halls are overshadowed by residential towers, and Eeyore’s Birthday Party, an idiosyncratic festival founded in the early 1960s and named after one of the characters in the Winnie the Pooh children’s stories, continues to draw locals, alongside the more elaborate and equally beloved Austin City Limits and South by Southwest music festivals.
