We thank everyone for their patience as we work together with the City of Austin through the current virus concerns and provide you with event updates. The city is optimistic the nation will be able to open up public spaces for events in the fall and winter. We share their optimism and scheduled our postponement date for Saturday December 5th at Fiesta Gardens, between 11am and 6pm. Full event details are being arranged. We’ll announce more information as we get closer to the date and monitor national response. You can find current event details, response measures, and sign-up information in the box above this form. Participants from 2019 and 2020 who submitted agreements and payments are reserved for our postponement date. Participation forms are up on our sign-up page now. We’ll have bundle packages available in the coming weeks for our 2020 and 2021 events.
Participants unable to participate at our December 5th postponement date, can roll over to our April 2021 date, or complete our Refund Pool application. Our team does not offer a refund policy in our participation agreement. Considering the unusual and unfortunate circumstances our team wanted to make an exception to this year’s policy. With event contracts and deposits already being paid prior to our postponement announcement, we’ve created a Refund Pool with the remaining amount of our funds so we can try and give back as much as we can to those in need while still being able to keep our organization alive. Our applicant cap is 50. The deadline to apply for the Refund Pool is May 31st. Refunds will go out the second week of June.
We need donations!
After our first ever rain-out in 2019, and now Cornonavirus in 2020, our wish for our 10th year is to have the best event in 2021! To do that we are working hard to; refund participants in need through our refund pool, make donations to local nonprofits for supplies and feed, follow CDC procedures and protocols slow the curve and mitigate the virus.
