Few cities have had the arts and culture expansion that Austin has experienced over the last few decades. Film, music, culinary and visual arts have exploded on the scene in this vibrant southern city. Every corner seems to have a new restaurant and new bands come here to find their sound and their following. Austin has developed an identity that sets itself apart from other Texas cities. Recently, Wizard World has added a convention there as well, further expanding their geek and nerd offerings! Austin also hosts the annual South by Southwest (SXSW) Music, Film and Interactive Festival in the spring.
