Did you know? Austin Parks Foundation has been the presenting charity of Austin City Limits Music Festival for the past 14 years, and we are proud to help ACL Music Festival and C3 Presents improve Austin’s parks, trails and green spaces.
Fans of ACL Music Festival have helped fund park projects all over our great city by purchasing their 3-day and 1-day tickets and enjoying a world-class music festival. Zilker Metropolitan Park, the home of the festival, is just one park supported by the $35 Million dollars ACL fans have provided for parks. Projects like Republic Square, trails like Barton Creek Greenbelt and swimming holes like Deep Eddy Pool have all benefited from the generosity of ACL Music Festival. Here's a note from Austin Parks Foundation's CEO:
"ACL FEST FANS HAVE MADE THOUSANDS OF PARK IMPROVEMENTS, PROGRAMS AND RENOVATIONS POSSIBLE. OUR PARTNERSHIP IS KEY TO THE HEALTH OF AUSTIN’S PARKS."
In addition to helping Austin’s parks through ACL Music Festival Grants and festival funds, APF raises much-needed funding for the parks through official Austin Parks Foundation gear on our Merchandise Store. We have exciting news! Everything in our store is 15% OFF from September 23rd to October 3rd with promo code ACLFEST19 at checkout.
