Third Annual International Potluck Picnic

On Sunday, May 31, GlobalAustin, the Austin Intercultural Network (AIN) and EuroCircle will be joining hands to host the Third Annual International Potluck Picnic. We warmly welcome all local international groups to participate!

BRING A DISH TO SHARE WITH 8 – 10 PEOPLE: This is your opportunity to share your traditional dishes and provide an opportunity for others to experience new flavors and, most of all, your cooking skills! Plates, napkins and utensils will be provided; you are asked to bring the serving utensil for the dish you bring. Wine, beer, coffee, and other beverages will be available for purchase at Alta’s Cafe. All food will be nicely organized according to the different flavors you bring to the table.

LOCATION: Alta’s Café and the Waller Creek Boathouse are located at the south end of Trinity Street. It’s a pretty perfect spot – on the hike and bike trail and overlooking Lady Bird Lake.

PARKING: Best parking is in the public lot located at 600 River Street, at the Mexican American Cultural Center (MACC). From the west side of the parking lot look for a black iron gate and the Waller Creek footbridge leading to the Four Seasons Hotel (and Alta’s Café). The café is just before the Four Seasons – a very short walk from the parking lot. Additional parking is available along Trinity Street, Cesar Chavez Street, and in area parking garages.

CONGRESS AVENUE KAYAKS: Located in the Waller Creek Boathouse, CAK will offer a 35% reduction on their hourly rate of 2-person kayaks, which is $10 for one hour. (mention you are with the international potluck picnic). If you wish to go kayaking or try stand-up paddle boarding, it is recommended that you arrive EARLY (4 p.m.). Wear water-friendly shoes, comfortable clothing, and maybe a hat and sunglasses. Indoor restrooms with changing area available.
