The Austin CHILL Weekend is a fun, laid back clothing optional weekend of bear brotherhood taking place during the Labor Day Weekend.
The Austin Chill Weekend is a Social Event for gay men. ACW welcomes all Bears, Cubs, Chubs, and Chasers to the wonderful and friendly City Of Austin. ACW is a fun, three day weekend featuring Bears, Brotherhood, Beverages, Bar-B-Q and relaxing pool parties. The purpose of the ACW is to relax, chill around the pool, meet and make new friends, maybe do some sightseeing, share in bear brotherhood, and to help raise money for local charities.
Get yourself ready to sit back, kick off your boots, and chill around the hotel pool with friends new and old, and have yourselves a great time. Events include the Mr Austin Chill Contest, Pool parties and the popular barge party.

Gay Map of Austin
The gay clubs in Austin are largely centered around the 4th street gay district and don’t get going until around midnight. Most of the city’s gay bars are within walking distance not only of each other but of dozens of other cool mainstream bars and clubs downtown, mostly in the hip Warehouse District that’s between the Texas Capitol building and the Colorado River. The gay scene in Austin is well integrated with the town so people mix and you’ll often spot gay folks hanging out at the music clubs, trendy lounges, coffeehouses, and restaurant bars that everyone else in town likes.
Also, Austin is home to a very popular and scenic gay sunbathing area, Hippie Hollow Park, a county-operated, clothing-optional park that’s about a 30-minute drive northwest of downtown, on the rocky but scenic shore of Lake Travis.
