Parking at the Palmer Events Center is in their garage and is $7 a day, so remember to bring cash to park, or carpool!

Lunch will also be sold at the festival, so remember to bring some cash for that as well (or bring your own lunch!) and also remember to bring money to buy books!

To keep up with the latest info, be sure to follow ATBF on twitter at @AustinTBF or on their Facebook page.


ATBF is also looking for volunteers! Even if you're only able to give a few hours of your time, it would help them out so much. If you're interested, please email ATBFvolunteer@gmail.com and they'll get you set up.

I, of course, will be there! Let me know if you'll be there too! And if you see me, please stop and say hello!
