For the past 15 years, ACL Music Festival and Austin Parks Foundation have worked together to improve Austin’s nearly 300 parks, trails and green spaces. Through the ACL Music Festival Grants Program, community-initiated park renovations and improvements in parks across the city have been funded.

ACL Fest contributions have also gone into signature park improvements and redevelopments all across Austin with targeted investments in underserved communities. In 2019 alone, ACL Fest fans contributed more than $6 million to APF through a percentage of ticket sales and other revenues. Thanks to their generosity, hundreds of volunteer events and signature programs are hosted in parks each year.
