Meet Dozens of Programs from Pre-K to Adult Education.

Join us for an afternoon of FREE family fun and learning. There's something for everyone! Alt Ed Austin is proud to bring our community's attention to the abundance and diversity of unconventional learning opportunities we are so fortunate to enjoy in the Austin area. We'll have information & activity booths hosted by innovative learner-centered schools, preschools, and other amazing programs serving both kids and adults. The Festival of Learning will also feature popular food vendors, cool arts & crafts for all ages, and family-friendly entertainment on an outdoor stage, capped off with a teen talent showcase after the school fair winds down, from 4pm to 5pm. We can't wait to play and learn with you!
