Status of Spring Festival, May 2nd & 3rd


Spring 2020 – CANCELLED

Pecan Street Festival Friends and Supporters:

As the City of Austin and Gov. Abbott have both called for the cancellation of events with 10 or more people through May 1st, and are urging the cancellation of events with 250 or more people between May 2nd and July 12th, we anticipate that at any minute, the City of Austin will mandate the cancellation of our May 2 & 3, 2020, Spring Festival. As a nationally recognized festival with more than 200,000 attendees, we wholeheartedly believe this is absolutely necessary, given our collective situation.

In anticipation of the inevitable mandate, we have decided to formally announce the cancellation of the Spring Festival scheduled for May 2-3rd. This is the first cancellation in our 42+ year history, but we believe it is the best course of action, for the health and safety of our community.

We will be sending out an email to all confirmed vendors detailing refunds in the coming days.

We are cautiously optimistic the Fall Pecan Street Festival will proceed as currently scheduled (Sept. 19th & 20th).

Meanwhile, we’ll be working on an “online festival,” highlighting vendors, performers and sponsors that were confirmed to participate in May. Stay tuned to our socials on:  TwitterFacebook and Instagram

We appreciate your long-standing support of the festival.  Please stay safe out there!
