May the Fourth be with you, Austinites! Several local businesses (and our local government) are observing the wordplay holiday on social media, and a fair few are holding Star Wars-themed events. So put on your Vader mask, wield your light saber and let our your best Wookie cry: it’s time to party before the Sith fifth is upon us!

See a list of Star Wars Day parties hosted by BlazerTag, Independence Brewing Co., and other Austin venues in our events database.
