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).
