Who We Are

A quick history about CACFest

CACFest started in El Salvador in 2005 as a mere gathering of singer-songwriters. It was brought to Austin TX in 2011 by his founder, Salvadoran singer-songwriter Mauricio Callejas, debuting with a sold out concert at the Cactus Cafe, since then CACFest has organized outdoor community events and more intimate concerts at different local venues. This project is funded and supported in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Development Department, Cultural Arts Division and the Texas Commission of the Arts.
