The Austin Cinco de Mayo Music Festival attracts an average of 20,000-35,000 people depending on the number of days scheduled making it the largest Cinco de Mayo celebration in Austin and one of the largest in Texas. The music festival boasts a variety of activities, musical acts and exhibitors. The proceeds benefit the GEAYL, an organization dedicated to breaking down the barriers for at-risk youth.
The Austin Creative Alliance is funded in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Development Department's Cultural Arts Division and by grants from Texas Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts which believes that a great nation deserves great art. The Creative Alliance also receives generous in-kind support from CreateAustin, and Time Warner Cable News. We are also grateful for the ongoing support and participation of our members and patrons.
