Your bid helps protect Austin’s most historic theatres!

Welcome to Austin Theatre Alliance's Holiday Auction! Our final auction of 2020 to protect the Paramount and Stateside Theatres is full of packages that make great holiday gifts or the perfect self-care treats for yourself! Shop festive drink baskets, music-inspired art, autographed collectibles, stunning jewelry, and so much more. Your bid helps us preserve history, reach Central Texas students with virtual programs, employ venue staff, and more. 

After canceling or rescheduling hundreds of shows since March, the Paramount has reopened at only 25% capacity for very limited engagements. As a nonprofit that has always relied on community support in addition to funds from ongoing performances, the pandemic is taking a massive toll. Your participation in the ATA Holiday Auction can help us address this gap.

Simply keep scrolling to view available items and place your bids when ready. If you are outbid, you'll be notified by email and text message (SMS) alerts. Happy holidays, and thank you for your important support!

Please note that this auction session is operating as an English style auction, where each package is sold to the bidder with the highest bid when the auction ends. 


This year's auction has gone all-digital to provide an easier and more convenient bidding experience for you. It works just like a traditional auction, except it's online. Just place your bids online for the package(s) that you want.

Payment information will be collected once upfront when you make your first bid so that you can be automatically charged for the package(s) you win at the end of the auction. If you don't win any items, you won't be charged. 

If someone outbids you, you'll instantly receive an email (or SMS text message) alert that contains a link that lets you increase your bid to stay in the lead.

You'll receive an email and text message (SMS) notification if you are outbid. When you're outbid, you'll be able to easily make another bid to stay in the lead by clicking the link in these notifications. 

You'll automatically be charged and notified for any item(s) that you win at the end of the auction.

Your bid helps support operations, preservation efforts, film, and education programs at the Paramount & Stateside Theatres. Your impact during our time apart ensures the Paramount can remain a vital part of Austin’s culture, and persevere for another 105 years.
