How to Get There: Springdale General Edition

August 30th, 2019

A community of makers and creatives, Springdale General hosts a variety of small to medium businesses from coffee roasters to non-profit organizations, and casual eats to tech startups. With so many great organizations, parking on-site can be limited. Good thing they are located right by a bus stop and have bike racks along with a community shower.

Community members of Springdale General include Caffe Medici, The Front Page Pub, Creative Action, Austin Parks Foundation, Latinitas, the Center for Social Innovation, and more.

This September, Springdale General has 2 big events coming up. On Saturday, September 14th, head on over for a BLOCK PARTY starting at 4:00pm. On the following day, bring the family for Community Art Sunday  hosted by Creative Action. Both events are free and open to the public.
