Why Does Austin Celebrate Eeyore's Birthday?

Eeyore's Birthday Party is a unique Austin tradition with a long history.

It started in 1963 as a simple picnic by University of Texas students.

The event is named after Winnie-the-Pooh's gloomy donkey friend, Eeyore.

Now held in Pease Park, it features live music, costumes, games, and supports local nonprofits.

Austinites love this quirky celebration of community and a beloved children's character.

Eeyore's Birthday embodies the "Keep Austin Weird" spirit.

This year's event promises to be another memorable celebration.
