    Umlauf Sculpture Garden: Reopened

    The Umlauf reopens its famed Garden to the general public. There won’t be any performances going on yet, as occasionally delighted crowds in the Before Times, but there will be all those expertly wrought sculptures, the bronze or stone cynosures from Charles Umlauf and others anchoring sight among the bright gardenscapes and tree-towered paths: Perfect for a strolling, fresh-air respite from yet another screenful of pixels in your all-too-familiar abode.: Note: The usual safety measures will be in effect: A limit of 30 visitors in the garden at a time; a one-way marked path to follow; masks and social distancing strongly encouraged; etc. (You know the routine: You’re an old hand at this pandemic shit by now, right?) Also, know that the Umlauf’s private-event rentals will resume with limited capacity set by local and state guidelines – and its summer camp program will proceed with those restrictions in mind, too.: See the museum’s website for details and to schedule an appointment.
    Tue.-Fri., 10am-4pm; Sat.-Sun., 11am-4pm

    Texas Woodworking Festival

    An event best described as a mix of a beer festival and a woodworking-themed farmers' market, it brings together local woodworking organizations, content creators, furniture makers, and tool manufacturers for a day of food, drinks, and all things woodworking. But it has a higher purpose: It's produced by the Austin School of Furniture & Design, and profits and donations from this event help the school offer classes to the next generation of woodworkers and furniture makers.: Note: Originally scheduled for April 18, the festival has been postponed to Sept. 26.
    Sat., Sept. 26, 11am-5pm. $22 suggested donation.
