Volunteering comes in several varieties, each with its own perks and responsibilities. Plus, HONK!TX is FREE to the public and will be taking place in the streets of Austin. That means, among other things, that you can enjoy the festival while still volunteering! Email our Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@honktx.org if you have questions.

Saturday Night Potluck!

We need to feed 400 band members and volunteers who have been bustin’ their rears all day!


Helping feed the bands is easy! Just make your super-special 7-layer dip/pasta salad/meatballs/etc and drop it off for our annual potluck. Stick around and make some new friends! Sign up for our potluck..


We have over 200 band members visiting from out of town this year, and they will each need a place to rest and freshen up for a few nights.

Hosting a band in your home is one of the best and most helpful ways to be involved with our community festival. While we can’t offer any compensation, we can guarantee that the friendships and memories you make with your guests will be treasured for years to come.

Think you would like to host some members of a band? Answer our housing questionnaire with our online google form.

Offering up a palatial estate near the country would be a wonderful gesture, but proximity to central Austin and/or reliable bus stops is a key factor for HONK!TX. The bands have a demanding performance schedule during their visit, and ease of transportation will be very important.

If you have questions about housing, feel free to email us at housing@honktx.org
