For twenty years, Forklift has created radically inclusive dance performances that honor workers, share stories, and bring people together
About the Event
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 28TH FROM 7 pm – 11 pm
UMLAUF SCULPTURE GARDEN
An unforgettable evening under the stars, Forklift will gather city collaborators, community leaders, art fans and our civic-minded supporters as we celebrate 20 years.
Guests will enjoy interactive performances, local bites and beverages, and inspiring moments drawn from Forklift’s dances with workers, heavy machinery, and local communities. And in Forklift style, the event will culminate in a platinum dance party.
Connect with Austinites in an extraordinary way as we celebrate art and the people who keep our city moving!
