Street Banner Program

The Street Banner Program provides a service to community nonprofits, arts and cultural groups, and other organizations that need an effective tool to promote events and public information of interest and benefit to Austinites and visitors. Street banners enhance the streetscapes of Austin, by adding a vibrant element that enlivens key corridors and the mobility experience for pedestrians, cyclists, transit users, and drivers. For Downtown and key districts, centers, and corridors, street banners strengthen a sense of place and district identity.

Eligibility

Event organizers, nonprofit groups, public and governmental agencies, and public information campaigns may display Street Banners on City lampposts to promote charitable, educational, arts, community, and public interest activities and events. City code prohibits the use of banners for commercial advertising or political campaigns.
