ACL Music Festival Highlights

In addition to the great music, the festival has a lot to offer with its Art Market, a mini-fest for kids and all the merch. It’s a fun weekend for families.

The mini-fest for kids, called Kiddie Limits has stroller lanes along with creative and educational activities for children. It also has baby-changing stations. Go through the Family Entrance and enjoy a space away from the crowds. Kids under the age of 10 are admitted free when accompanied by parents. Parents can register their kids and get an RFID wristband for the child so lost kids can quickly be located and rejoin their parents.

ACL Eats

You can savor delicious food at the festival, which promotes ACL Eats as “Far from funnel cake and turkey legs.” Austin is known for its good food. Local restaurants in Austin and the surrounding areas set up food booths with healthy dishes like crunchy fish tacos parmesan and parsley fries. Not to mention the brews and veggie dishes too.
