Kids 10 and Under Get In Free with Parents
11:00 AM – 7:00 PM DAILY
Open daily both weekends, Austin Kiddie Limits is chock-full of rockin’ good stuff guaranteed to make kids of all ages move, groove, and sing-along. From fun, creative and informative activities to festival necessities like baby changing stations, Austin Kiddie Limits is a festival within a festival that offers families an escape from the crowds.
To make it even easier, we have a Family Friendly Entrance (closes at 7pm daily). Bring the kiddos through the entrance off Barton Springs Road to quickly enter the cool, shaded Austin Kiddie Limits location, or look for stroller-friendly family lanes at each of the main gates.
Once you’re in the park visit the Tag-a-Kid tent at the Family Entrance or the Info Tent at the Main Entrance where parents can register their kids with the festival and receive an RFID wristband. In the event that a child is separated from their parent, we have a reliable and fast way to reunite them.
The best part? Kids 10 and under get into ACL Festival free with parents. Stay tuned for the 2017 Lineup and Activities!
