About Lone Star Shindig

Once a year, Texas Browncoats gather together to celebrate things they love: being a Browncoat, Texas and Shindiggery.

You might ask yourself, "Self, what does shindiggery entail?" Shindiggery is entertainment at its best. It's eating great food and listening to great music all while spending time with the most shiny folks in the 'verse. This year, we're celebrating our love of being a Texas Browncoat by transporting ourselves to Southdown Abbey on Persephone. We'll spend a weekend where Shepherd Book studied and dance the night away to inspirational folk music. We'll eat great food, including free fruits, because the Abbey grows the most delicious tomatoes and strawberries in the black! Join the Austin Browncoats as we celebrate the 5th Annual Lone Star Shindig in the heart of the Lone Star State! And don't forget, you don't have to be from Austin to be an Austin Browncoat!

About Austin Browncoats

Austin Browncoats, founded in 2007, is a 501(c)(3), tax-exempt non-profit located in Austin, TX.

Austin Browncoats work to end violence and discrimination in all sectors of society. We place special focus on working alongside young women and children because, given the opportunity and proper education, young women and children can help create a better world for all beings. Much like our passion for the amazing works of Joss Whedon, such as Firefly, we are passionate about our causes and raising funds for our charities, including Equality Now, SafePlace, Heart House, Kids Need to Read and Emancipet.

We started out as a Firefly and Serenity fandom, and would meet every First Sunday of the month to watch an episode of Firefly. We've held on to that tradition, but have expanded upon our activities.

Since our incorporation in July 2007, we've raised money for local and global charities, as well as hosted a number of fundraisers, including Geekstravaganza 2007 and Blazer Tag: Battle of Serenity Valley 2007. We had the honor of being the 2008 Host City for the Browncoat Ball. We host raffles of donated Browncoat goodies at Sci-Fi and Anime Conventions with proceeds going to charity; we sell t-shirts, posters and a number of other Browncoat Must-Haves.

Austin Browncoat Events

In addition to this year's Lone Star Shindig, Austin Browncoats host a variety of events throughout the year; some of which are held monthly. Below is just a sampling of the events we hold. You don't have to live in Austin to be an Austin Browncoat, so if you are interested in becoming one of us, visit our website for more information on our events and how to join us.
