Austin’s merciless summer is over and that means more people are planning outdoor weekend events. This Saturday, Austin will host eight events downtown, setting a record for the number of simultaneous street closures. That's according to the city’s transportation department.
Here's what's going on this weekend:
- Austin Film Festival
- Gypsy Picnic Trailer Food Festival
- March to Abolish the Death Penalty
- Purple Stride 5K
- SFC Farmers Market
- Texas Book Festival
- Tour de Fat
- Viva La Vida Fest
The city has a map of street closures here, but it’s a PDF and we hoped we could make it more useful by putting the closures on a Google Map. The Austin Transportation Department also has this map of downtown parking lots and garages in case you’re heading to one of these events and can’t find street parking.
