The festival is not funded by taxpayers: It is being produced by C2 Acquisitions, LLC. This company is paying a fee to utilize the park, and per the special-event ordinance, will reimburse the City for overtime for police, fire, and EMS staff. In addition to bringing in thousands of visitors, who will stay the night and spend money in Georgetown, the Friends of Georgetown Parks and Recreation will receive at least $500,000, which will go back into the Parks and Recreation Department for capital projects, programs, and scholarships.
This festival aligns with the City Council’s vison to make greater use of our parks for economic development purposes. The City Council voted to approve the contract with C3 Presents for the festival. A decision about future festivals will be made after the event this year.
The event organizers have secured parking spots at both Georgetown High School and East View High School, as well as parking at Barton Creek Mall in Austin. Shuttles run from all locations.
There will also be a pickup and drop off area for rideshare users near the festival entrance.
The parking lots are for customers and employees for those businesses. The City is publicizing parking information for the festival, so attendees will park in other locations.
If there is a concern about parking in these areas, business owners/patrons can call police dispatch at 512-930-3510.
The two pedestrian crossings off College Street will remain open for pedestrian traffic. However, vehicular traffic is limited in these areas. The park and river area near the low water crossing is outside the festival area and will remain open for pedestrians but will not have vehicular access during the festival.
