While at PyTexas you may park in the Austin Public Library parking garage while space is available. **This is a public parking garage and you will have to pay. You can find the rates here. ** Just tell the parking attendant that you are here for the event.
The event will be starting before the library is open. Be sure to use the South Elevator or stairs to Cesar Chavez to access the venue. See the map below for directions.
Other Parking Options¶
If the parking garage is full, there are other parking options nearby.
2024 Health and Safety Guidelines¶
Our attendees' health and safety remain our top priority as we continue to monitor the state of the pandemic and look to venue, local, state, and CDC guidelines to make the best and most informed decisions around onsite safety and requirements.
Masking and Vaccinations Recommended¶
The PyTexas team encourages everyone in attendence to be up to date with their COVID-19 vaccinations. The team also recommends facial coverings when indoors and unable to social distance.
Harrassing anyone for their decision regarding masking will be considered a violation of our Physical Spaces Code of Conduct and will result in appropriate action.
We encourage attendees to do a rapid test before traveling and consider testing during the event, especially if you will be eating indoors with people. We did look into providing free, rapid onsite testing for participants, but it is not feasible (logistically or financially) for an event like ours.
Individuals should not attend the event if they are COVID-positive, are exhibiting COVID symptoms (as defined by the CDC), or have been exposed, within 7 days prior to the event, to someone who was COVID-positive or showed COVID symptoms.
If you are feeling sick or exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, or test positive for COVID-19, prior to the start of the conference, or on any day of the conference, please contact us at [email protected], and we will exchange your ticket type for an online ticket or grant you a refund.
Anyone traveling to the event should read and abide by the CDC's Travel Guidelines for domestic and international travel. We ask that participants respect fellow attendees and do everything possible to ensure an environment that is as safe as possible.
Monitoring of the Requirements Will Continue¶
We've monitored COVID-related news and data since the pandemic started, and we will continue to do so moving forward. We continue to follow all CDC guidelines in addition to those of the local government and venue. International, national, regional, and local sources are closely watched and will result in a change of policy if warranted.
The guidelines implemented for PyTexas 2024 are subject to change based on health and safety recommendations at the time of the event. We are committing, however, to only make changes in the direction of greater protections.
Our goal is to ensure that everyone who wants to attend PyTexas can do so, regardless of age, race, gender, ethnicity, ability or sexual orientation. One way we make this possible is by providing financial assistance to community members that are otherwise unable to attend.
In addition to already subsidized rates for individuals, students and those under the age of eighteen, this grant can be used by those in need to cover registration fees, hotels, and travel. These opportunity grants come directly from the PyTexas budget on a case-by-case basis.
Currently we have a limited budget and are evaluating what we can provide. Tickets are generally the easiest thing to grant, and we are aiming to have some cash to help reimburse travel/lodging.
If you are facing a financial hardship, or would not be able to attend without assistance, please fill out the application below. Applications will be approved by Feb. 20th 2023.
