Ascarate Park

For the 2017 edition of Sun City Music Festival, we return to Ascarate Park this Labor Day weekend, transforming El Paso County's largest recreational park into a vibrant arena of electronic music. Coming in at a whopping 448 total acres, Ascarate Park has always served as an excellent backdrop to host SCMF's three stages of music, vendors, art installations, and mesmerizing production.


Labor Day weekend is coming up and we know this year's party-goers are ready to hit the grounds of Sun City Music Festival running! Since we're gonna be living it up all weekend long, we highly encourage everyone to stay safe in transit and CARPOOL with your crew. Take advantage of our special offer from Uber and split the fare with your friends. Plus, speed through the front gates thanks to our official charity partner, The Salvation Army. Whether you're making the trek from out of town, or you're an El Paso local, here is all the information you need to arrive safely!


If you're driving to the event yourself, please carpool with fellow comrades as space is limited. Parking will be held inside the park and costs $5.00 per car - cash only - with lots opening at 4:00 PM each day.
