FAQs Festival Grounds Paid Parking:

Q: Can I drive in before noon to set up?

A: No, no one from the public will be allowed into the park prior to our 5pm, start time.

Q: Can I bring a pop up tent, chairs and grill?

A: Yes! Feel free to bring everything you need to set up for a great day on the lake and fireworks. Grills MUST have a lid. NO OPEN FIRES ALLOWED. Weights are highly recommended for canopy tents to prevent them from blowing away in the wind.

Q: I am a LVPOA member with access card, do I still need to buy a parking pass to drive into the park?

A: Yes, the park is rented to the 4th of July Council for the day. Access cards will not work or be valid to use in the park on Saturday, July 1st. The K Oaks Clubhouse parking lot has been reserved for LVPOA members only to be shuttled to and from the festival. Please plan to purchase a pass or park in one of our free parking lots and ride a shuttle bus into Bar K Park.

Q: Will I be able to come and go as needed?

A: Yes! But please know that later in the evening the Fire Marshal may stop in and out traffic for fireworks safety. You may need to stay put if that is the case.

Q: Can I park near my friends?

A: Please plan to arrive with your friends if you’d like to park together. No guarantees if you arrive at different times.

Q: Where is free parking?

A: Golf carts may arrive for free inside Bar K park (decorations encouraged!). The free CapMetro park and ride area will be the public parking spaces near City Hall and along Dawn Drive. We will have free CapMetro shuttle buses running constantly from noon to the end of the festival.

Q: How will we park if we buy a festival parking pass?

A: All parking pass holders will be directed to a parking zone, first come first serve. There will be rows with easy in and out aisles created by our parking attendants. The parking will be on the sandy shore of Lake Travis and not a paved lot.

Q: Can I purchase a parking pass the day of the event?

A: It is likely that our festival shoreline parking passes will sell out prior to the event. We are required to limit the number of cars in the park for safety reasons.
