Where can I park?

There is a small parking lot across the street and some street parking is available. During such a busy weekend in Austin, we recommend using a ride share service, taxi, scooter, bike, Carrier pigeon, etc to get to the event and avoid parking all together.

Can I leave and come back later?

Sure, just keep your wristband on and don’t get drunk while you’re gone.

Can people who drink come to the event?

Yes! Bring everyone! We’re hosting this event to prove that drinkers and non drinkers alike can hang out together, listen to awesome music and have a blast without it being weird. We don’t care what your choice is when it comes to drinking: just take the afternoon off while you’re hanging out at Sober by Southwest.

Is there any alcohol served for my friends who drink?

Nope. We have tons of other stuff to drink and it’s all included in your ticket price. Outside beverages are not allowed.

Is this an official SXSW event?

No, we are independently producing this event and are in no way affiliated with South by Southwest.

What if it rains?

This event is happening, rain or shine! Texas weather is a little unpredictable and hey, we’ve all been through worse things than rain, right?

I bought a ticket and can’t go anymore. Can I get a refund?
