PHOENIX — “Boots in the Park” is returning to Tempe for the third time, prompting several street closures and restrictions near the event.

The country music festival is scheduled to run from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday at Tempe Beach Park.

Kane Brown, Lee Brice, Tyler Hubbard, Parmalee, Dylan Schneider and Luwiss Lux will headline this year’s family-friendly event.

There’ll also be line dancing, beer and cocktails, food vendors and art installations at the event. Tickets can be purchased online.

General admission starts at $99.00. Children ages 5 and under can attend for free, with the purchase of an adult or guardian ticket.

What streets will be closed off in Tempe this weekend?

With the event on the horizon, motorists are advised to plan around the closures, which go into effect from 7 a.m. Friday through 6 a.m. Sunday.

The first closure includes eastbound Rio Salado Parkway, between Hardy Drive and Mill Avenue. Westbound Rio Salado Parkway will also be closed between Mill Avenue and Lakeside Drive.

Southbound Mill Avenue will be closed between Curry Road and Rio Salado Parkway. Northbound Ash Avenue will be closed at Third Street, and eastbound First Street will be closed at Rio Salado Parkway.
