Ballet Austin's Fete & Fete*ish 2012


A snow flurry is set to hit Austin’s landmark Driskill Hotel as Ballet Austin kicks off the gala season with its annual fundraiser Fête 2012 and companion event fête*ish 2012.

Hailed as Austin’s best black tie event attracting the city’s top luminaries, Fête is an elegant experience like no other.

Hosted at some of the most exclusive downtown addresses, Ballet Austin chose The Driskill Hotel this year to commemorate the milestone year for Austin’s favorite holiday tradition, The Nutcracker, as well as a significant milestone for The Driskill, celebrating its Victorian-era opening 125 years ago.

With a limited 220 seats available for Fête 2012, guests will enjoy Nutcracker-inspired custom cocktails and a signature multi-course themed cuisine by The Driskill Hotel, as well as live entertainment and exclusive VIP access to the Ballet Barre & lounge filled with dreamy sweets, worldly treats and glistening surprises at fête*ish.

Grammy-winning DJ Spinderella is headlining the event, which will also feature performances by cabaret jazz artist Mandy Lauderdale and Austin’s always entertaining and outrageous The Invincible Czars.
