Eeyore"s birthday party is a day long festival taking place annually in Austin TX since 1963. It was named for Eeyore, a chronically depressed donkey in A.A Milne's Winnie the Pooh stories who, in one story, believes his friends have forgotten his birthday only to discover they have planned a surprise party for him. It's typically held on the last saturday of April in Austin's Peace Park. Although frequented by children and families, with specific events presented for them by the event organizers, Eeyore's birthday party is also known for its high incidence of recreational drug use.
