Festival Canceled: 5K Continues

The Old Town Street Festival will no longer take place in 2020. We would have loved to put on another memorable event this year, however, with the uncertainty surrounding the current situation in Texas, this decision is the only responsible solution. The health and safety of our fans, artists, partners, staff and the entire Leander community remains our highest priority.
