Barton Springs Fest 2013

Save Our Springs

Barton Springs might just be the true heart of Austin, and now the city can properly celebrate its impact on the community the best way that it can — with a festival. The City Council passed a resolution earlier this year to establish the second Saturday of August as Barton Springs Fest Day, commemorating the August 8, 1992 voter approval of Austin's Save Our Springs citizen-initiated ordinance. 

Enjoy free cold watermelon, partake in the diving competition, take a few eco-tours, listen to special lectures from educators and end the evening with live music on the South Hill.
