A Sandlot Facility

Where everybody enjoys a home field advantage.


The Long Time is...

...a unique event space for rent in far east Austin. Five acres of versatile grounds provide a contemporary country backdrop for wedding ceremonies & receptions, rehearsal dinners, family reunions, musical performances, sporting events (baseball/kickball), corporate retreats, educational workshops, or any other cause for celebration. We strive to create authentically Austin events on almost any budget. Welcome to the Long Time.

Only 12 miles east of downtown Austin, The Long Time provides: 5 acres of beautiful Texas landscape, ancient pecan and oak trees, comfortable indoor/outdoor meeting space, covered front and back porches, a baseball/softball/kickball field, a batting cage with accompanying sports equipment, a metal and wood shop (instructor required), a shade pavilion, a towable flatbed trailer-cum-stage, a kitchen with food storage and prep space, a wildflower meadow, fruit and vegetable garden full of hyper-local ingredients, two bedrooms, two indoor bathrooms, an outdoor bathroom facility, a variety of parking options, on-site camping availability, event tents, a golf cart, lots of hens and a really mean rooster.

Sandlot is...

...more than baseball! It's kickball and camp outs. It's live music and tacos. It's welding retreats and wedding receptions. It's making the maximum impact with the minimum means. It's hyper-local and DIY. It's wildflowers and outlaw country. It's whatever you dream up!

Come out and show us what you've got in mind!

 It's Build-Your-Own Corporate Welding Retreats! (Why not?)
