Sociables are small events held during the coming months hosted by many of our closest friends and family. The hosts determine venue, date, food/drink, and number of guests, and you - our Fête and fête*ish guests - sign up to attend one or more of them. Prices vary and these events are held everywhere from salons to exclusive, private homes.
The following Sociables have been officially announced and individual tickets will be available at Fête and fête*ish on September 21. Interested parties may "buy-out" a Sociable for the discounted buy-out price listed by each description AHEAD of the September 21 event to reserve all of the space available for a private party. Dates of each event are set and not changeable except where noted.
If you are interested in buying-out a Sociable, please contact Christi Cuellar, Development Director, at 512.476.9151 ext.124.
