In coordination with the Return and Discover Festival, Better Block AustinEast 12th Street Merchant's Association and Urban Co-Lab are teaming up to transform the 12th + Chicon Street corridor.

The Better Block is a nationwide movement that seeks to educate, equip, and empower communities and their leaders to reshape and reactivate underutilized corridors and neighborhoods.

Celebrate with a new farmers/makers market by REVELRY, a morning fitness boot camp, pop-up park, updated business facades, Capital Metro bus stop and signage, live mural painting, crosswalk and sidewalk artwork, new neighborhood programming, food truck park updates and so much more. Of course it wouldn't be East Austin without some live music!

They need the help of the community to pull this off, so if you would like to provide in-kind or monetary donations or volunteer, please reach out to
