C3 Presents, the producer of the Two Step Inn Festival, is looking to expand the event to a three-day festival in 2024. The festival, which is scheduled for April 15-16 in Georgetown, has already sold out and the response has been overwhelming. C3 Presents is looking to renew its agreement with the city for 2024, contingent on the event’s inaugural year being successful.

The festival is presented by the Friends of Georgetown Parks and Recreation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, and proceeds from the festival, estimated to be up to $500,000, will be donated to the Friends to support the parks and recreation department in the form of capital improvements, scholarships and programs. C3 Presents must also remediate the park back to its same condition or better.

The two-day country music festival will include three stages, with 30,000 ticket holders per day, bringing in musicians, including Zach Bryan, Tyler Childers and more. City staff and C3 representatives have been working since January to plan for the upcoming event. The city will have an interactive map on its website to show residents which sections of the park will be closed, including streets, the recreation center, picnic pavilions and trails.

The parking lot next to the Georgetown Recreation Center will be used as a shuttle drop-off location and for ridesharing drivers. “No parking” signs will be placed throughout the surrounding area to keep festivalgoers from parking on neighborhood streets. The city will also be looking at financial indicators, such as sales tax data, to help determine the economic impact the festival will have on the city.

Before a special event permit can be granted for the Two Step Inn, a final site plan, traffic control plan, waste management plan and updated insurance certificate must be finalized.
