Pecan Street Festival on Sixth Street. Austin’s music axis may have shifted up Red River, down South Congress and east of I-35, but the historic stretch of Sixth between the Interstate and Congress still grants a wide, welcoming berth for this twice-annual festival. It’s mainly an arts and crafts fair, but there’s free music on three stages from noon until dark on Saturday and Sunday. Performers include Soul Track Mind, A Giant Dog, Magna Carda, Suzanna Choffel, Hard Proof, BLXPTN, Residual Kid, Kiko Villamizar, Mindz of a Different Kind and many more. Check the full lineup and scheule at pecanstreetfestival.org/music. — P.B.
