The City of Lago Vista is in the process of completing Phase One of a new municipal sports and recreation complex. Expected completion is May 2020. A variety of sports and entertainment events are held in Lago Vista each year. Lago Fest is a large live music, art, and food festival on the shore of Lake Travis in Bar-K Park. Festival goers enjoy coming by boat as well as land. Lago Fest is held at the same time as the Austin Yacht Club’s Annual Turnback Regatta. Sailors race to the shore of Bar-K Park camp overnight and race back in the morning. The highly touted La Primavera bike race is held in Lago Vista offering serious cyclists a challenging course throughout the city’s winding hilly roadways overlooking the lake.
