Our Events

Our annual events are all about bringing people together! These events engage the broader Central Texas community, extending beyond individuals with Down syndrome and their families. A truly inclusive world takes all of us, so join us as we bring together our Central Texas Down syndrome community for inclusive and fun events. Additionally, some of these events include a fundraising component, and we greatly depend on the generosity of our donors at these events to support our diverse programming!

If you or your company are interested in collaborating with DSACT for any of these events, please email our Programs and Events Manager, Julia Forslund.
