The city has issued a convenient, color-coded map showing all the street closures for the festival, including venue closures, City of Austin closures, closures with resident access and event closures – both partial and full.

This year’s SXSW will take place March 8-17. Swaths of downtown will be tricky to navigate during certain hours each day, so patience is a must.
