    Fête 2012

     A snow flurry is set to hit Austin’s landmark Driskill Hotel September 21, 2012, as Ballet Austin kicks off the gala season with its annual fundraiser Fête 2012 and companion event fête*ish 2012. This year’s events mark a milestone as Ballet Austin celebrates the 50th Golden Anniversary of The Nutcracker in decadent Victorian style.

    Ballet Austin’s annual Fête and fête*ish open both the Company’s performance season and Austin’s gala line-up where business leaders, social mavens and arts patrons of all ages gather to mix, mingle, dine, dance, and to raise funds for Ballet Austin’s community education programs, which serve more than 57,000 Central Texans each year.

    Ballet Austin’s Fête Gala Dinner – 6pm
    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.

    Ballet Austin’s fête*ish – 8pm
    Later in the evening, the properly Victorian Fête intersects with the notorious and whimsical fête*ish. At 8pm, fête*ish turns up the volume and turns down the lights with exquisite morsels, libations, Nutcracker-themed photo booths, and dancing ignited by Austin’s best entertainers and DJs – all designed to delightfully assault the senses. With lavishly sweet surprises around every corner, fête*ish holds its guests captivated until the clock strikes midnight.
