Circuit of The Americas (COTA) is offering multi-night, premium RV parking spaces during two major events coming to Central Texas next month. South by Southwest (SXSW), the world’s largest music, film and interactive festival, will take over downtown Austin March 7-16, while the Star of Texas Rodeo returns to the Travis County Fair and Expo Center March 1-16. Both events draw hundreds of thousands of out-of-state visitors to the Austin area.

To help accommodate the many visitors heading to Austin for SXSW and the rodeo, COTA is renting its permanent RV parking spaces located along the circuit’s Back Straight between Turns 11 and 12.
