Held on the beautiful and sprawling Cool River Ranch, the festival site is quintessential central Texas and features 220 acres, on site parking, camping, thatched-roof cabanas, San Marcos river access, and is close to local hotels and amenities. As one of the region’s most popular river tubing destinations, people from across The Lone Star State make San Marcos a mecca for Texans to cool off in the cold spring water escaping the heat.
