Best Arts Festival: TIE: EAST; Pecan Street Festival

Meandering: The human activity of meandering binds the two winners of this category. You'll need a map to navigate the entirety of East Austin Studio Tour (but if you hit the artist-dense Pump Project and Canopy, you'll have plenty to see), while the Pecan Street Festival is easy (as long as you remember that Sixth street used to go by a different name). Either way, you'll be up-close and personal with the artists and craftsfolk whose wares you're perusing – the best way, by any stretch of the legs, to see and buy art.
