The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires the City of Austin and public accommodations to provide equitable access for people with disabilities. Event organizers are expected to make every effort to follow ADA guidelines and provide and maintain access for people with disabilities.

An (ADA) compliance plan is required for any special event that interferes with accessibility on City streets, sidewalks, right-of-way, or city facilities. This plan must also comply with the Texas Architectural Barriers Act in Texas Government Code Chapter 469, the Texas Accessibility Standards, and Texas Human Resources Code Chapter 121.
