This year’s festival will have two shows at two different places on September 22nd, 2012:
2PM – Family Event at The Plaza Saltillo – Free Event (412 Comal St. Austin TX. 78702 – Map)
Austin’s new Plaza Saltillo was inaugurated by a visiting delegation from our Sister City of Saltillo, Mexico, for which it was named. The City of Saltillo generously donated ornate traditional Saltillo benches for the Plaza.
Inspired by the popular plazas of Mexican cities and towns, Plaza Saltillo’s design includes a bandstand and an arcade for sidewalk vendors. The Plaza will be a stop for Capital Metro’s new commuter rail system.
More information about the plaza can be found at the Austin Parks website
The Cactus Cafe & Bar is one of Austin’s great acoustic music traditions. The Cactus is an all ages intimate live music performance venue, and since the Cafe opened in February 1979, the Cactus has acquired a national reputation, showcasing the top local, regional, national and international acoustic music acts on the circuit today. Billboard magazine listed the Cactus as one of fifteen “solidly respected, savvy clubs” nationwide “from which careers can be cut, that work with proven names and new faces.”
