Officials with Waterloo Greenway released the six new immersive installations created by local artists that will illuminate the grounds during this year's Creek Show at Waterloo Park, 500 E. 12th St., Austin, set for Nov. 10-18.

What's happening

Each year, with the exception of 2020 due to COVID-19, a handful of local artists' works are curated and put on display for the public to enjoy.

The free, nine-night showcase will extend from Ninth Street to Waterloo Park and feature light-based, immersive artworks that focus on artistic representations of the ecology, history and culture surrounding Waller Creek.

What you should know

According to the Creek Show website, tickets are not required for the event, and visitors are invited to experience Creek Show nightly between 6-10 p.m.

"This year's Creek Show installations blend imaginative artistry with the splendor of the natural world to inspire visitors to experience Waller Creek in a new light," said Donald Miller, Waterloo Greenway director of programing.

Miller said visitors will be treated each night to free live music along with food and drinks, and other family-friendly activities.

What else?

A joint effort between the Waterloo Greenway Conservancy and the city of Austin, the first phase of Waterloo Park began in 2017 and finished in August 2021.

The second phase, which is now underway and will stretch from Fourth Street to Lady Bird Lake, broke ground in May and is expected to be completed by the end of 2025.

The third and final phase, anticipated to be finished in 2026, will extend from Third Street to 11th Street—connecting phases 1 and 2, and completing the goal of connecting 35 acres of green space winding along Waller Creek.
