The weekend sees a couple of big festivals concentrated downtown. Namely, we have the lit-celebrity-studded Texas Book Festival and the plain old celebrity-studded Austin Film Festival and their attendant street closures (below).

There’s also the always-fun Viva la Vida Festival & Parade Saturday and the usual farmers market and tailgating, so be on your toes out there, people.

Closure listings and maps via the Downtown Austin Alliance.
