about the event


The Galaxy Whisky Gala returns and will be held on Saturday, March 29th 2025. Join us as we open Whisky Festival Season for Austin in 2025. The Galaxy Whisky Gala gathers the top Whisky Distillers from across the globe to come together in Austin Texas.


We add in delicious food, fine cigars, and festive music to round out the night. This is a fancy evening out, a chance to don your finest clothes and taste the best whiskies in luxury surroundings. Enjoy a red carpet experience complete with a photo op, and even a stay at the Down Right Austin Hotel in Downtown Austin.


Why not make it a fun weekend getaway with our exclusive discounted rooms at the Down Right Austin Hotel (formerly the Sheraton), which also include extra goodies, available only to people who book a hotel room through our discounted block.

Bears For Bairns


Our Parent charity grew out of Stephen “The Texas Highlander'' Harris' love of bringing teddy bears to sick children stuck in the hospital on Christmas Eve every year. He wanted to bring more toys to more children and created Bears for Bairns as a way to do this.


Bears for Bairns’ mission seeks to provide a small comfort for children in hospitals, starting on Christmas Eve, but expanding to other times of year as we grow with your support!


Steve asked Catherine Sikora to join him in creating the Galaxy Whisky Gala and the Starry Night Whisky Dinner as the main fundraisers for the charity. The charity became official in 2023, and 2024 is the first year of the Gala and Dinner. Click the button below to donate directly to our charity.
