The Long Time is far east Austin’s most unique event space. Just 12 miles from Austin and nestled on a country road among small family farms and ranchitos, the The Long Time is a 5 acre playground for your imagination. Welcome!


The Long Time is a versatile space perfect for small outdoor gatherings or larger events of up to 500 fun-loving folks. We are a team of designers, builders, musicians, event producers, and sandlot all-stars that can curate turn-key events or simply hand over the keys and let you do the creative planning and production. What will your sandlot experience entail?


The Long Time facility’s stand-out feature is its custom sandlot baseball field – the home field of The Texas Playboys Baseball Club. The Playboys host opposing teams from near and far on the second Saturday of the month, March through October, in what we call “Sandlot Service” – a family-friendly community event with baseball, music, and plenty of good vibes.

The Baseball Club now offers yearly subscription services so that anyone can be a member!

The versatile grounds also contain the studio and metal shop of Jack Sanders’ creative practice, Design Build Adventure. DBA offers 4+ maker workshops per year combining art, welding, yoga (occasionally), music (often), and tacos (always).

The remaining 350(ish) days of the year, The Long Time is YOURS for the booking!
