Deep in the Heart of Cedar Park

A look at the giving groups in our community that you can support

Since 2009, Fable Fest has been an annual event that promises family-friendly fun. Thousands of our neighbors come together at Elizabeth Milburn Park in support of the event’s host, the Cedar Park Public Library Foundation. Attractions range from jousting demonstrations to storytimes.

This event is made possible by its incredible sponsors. With their help, the library gains funding for early literacy initiatives, summer reading programs, and advanced technology. We would like to thank these sponsors for giving back to one of the cornerstones of our community.
