Solstice Festival is an Austin Green Art project, put on with Solstice and Special Events Live. Each organizer of the event has a deep connection with the Pan Am community. Read more online: SolsticeATX.com. Austin Green Art has put on Austin Earth Day for 5 years, and built the beautiful garden at Pan Am Park. Solstice shared the same lawn as their startup office and continues to work on the east side today. Special Events Live got their start organizing concerts at Pan Am Park over a decade ago.
