Paramount Gala 2022

Attend Performers Auction

Four-time Grammy winner Gary Clark Jr. headlines our biggest fundraiser of the year, an unforgettable night that will transport you back to classic Austin in an all-out celebration of all things ATX: the eclectic live music scene, iconic venues, celebrated foods, creative cocktails, and majestic views.

The party starts under the starry Texas sky and flashing lights of our iconic marquee. You’ll head inside the Paramount for a must-see-it-to-believe-it live auction and intimate concert with Gary Clark Jr. Then, the night continues outside where we have shut down Congress Avenue to dine, dance, and party over two blocks of Austin’s main street!

Your ticket purchase to the Paramount’s 107th Anniversary Gala supports the historic preservation of Austin’s oldest theatres and our award-winning education programs that introduce Central Texas kids to the arts. A percentage of your ticket purchase qualifies as a tax-deductible donation.

About the Anniversary Gala

Your support during this sell-out fundraiser directly helps protect two of Austin’s oldest venues – the Paramount and Stateside Theatres. When you purchase a tax-deductible table or tickets, you help:

  • advance world-class, diverse programming across all genres – music, comedy, spoken word, drag, and so much more
  • serve more than 35,000 Central Texas students through arts programs offered in-person and virtual
  • support historic preservation projects to protect Austin’s most historic stages
  • pay artists and performers helping bring more than 600 shows and events to downtown Austin

This event historically sells out, and helps raise funds through ticket sales, custom curated silent and live auctions where exclusive experiences and packages are created with you in mind, and other interactive donation opportunities. This event always highlights and celebrates live performance at the heart of what we do. Past headliners have included: Earth Wind & Fire, Trombone Shorty, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Gipsy Kings, Chris Isaak, Patty Griffin, Elvis Costello and Lyle Lovett. (And that’s just to name a few of our most recent headliners for this special tradition lasting more than 20 years!)
