Tuesday, October 15, 2019 by Tai Moses

The Austin Parks and Recreation Department wishes to host an annual special event and is looking for a professional event organizer to produce it. The event will take place at Fiesta Gardens West End, at Edward Rendon Sr. Metropolitan Park at Festival Beach. According to PARD’s press release, “Applications should be for a dynamic, cultural and/or music experience that is family friendly and affordable, includes a wide range of entertainment genres, appeals to Austin’s diverse population, and remains within the park boundaries.” The parks department is looking for applicants who have a background organizing and producing special events with more than 1,000 attendees and have worked with the Austin Center for Events. “A successful application will demonstrate experience and understanding of the Special Events Ordinance, ACE Office, PARD policies, and Parkland Events Taskforce Recommendations.” The deadline for responding to PARD’s request for applications is 4:30 p.m. on Nov. 1. More details are available at the Office of Special Events.
