Free Water Stations

Leave your cooler of bottled water at home. To help support and raise awareness for water conservation, the Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD) is sponsoring free water stations around the festival. Simply bring your own water bottles and fill them up, or buy our commemorative, 28-oz, aluminum bottle with a BPA-free liner for only 10 coupons. It makes a great souvenir and you can refill it throughout the festival.

Dog Safety! Please, No Pets!
