Eeyore's Birthday

Eeyore's Birthday, named after the donkey charcater in Winnie-the-Pooh, started as a spring picnic for Department of English students at the University of Texas at Austin in 1963. Over the years it evolved into an larger community event, held every year on the last Saturday of April at Pease Park. The spring festival traditionally hosts large drum circles, live music, family friendly actvites and encourages its attendees to wear costumes.
