The festival will be held September 26-28 in downtown Austin, Texas, and will feature insightful panel discussions, debates, keynote addresses and community conversations all centered on and around politics and public policy, in Texas and nationally. For the second year, the Festival will also welcome attendees to Open Congress, the popular free programming woven into the event. More information can be found at festival.texastribune.org. The 2019 Festival, which will fall on the heels of the 86th Legislative Session and come just months ahead of the 2020 election cycle, is expected to attract the most attendees in its history. Event organizers are making arrangements for record-breaking crowds. "Year nine of the Texas Tribune Festival is an unprecedented opportunity to connect Texans to big ideas and big thinkers. There’s so much news to be batted about, and there are so many everyday folks — more than ever — who are desperate to be part of a conversation about politics and public policy. Coming out of the 2018 elections and heading into 2020 — and on the heels of the 2019 legislative session — we are bracing for the best fest yet. Can’t wait." – Evan Smith, CEO of The Texas Tribune More than 120,000 combined in-person attendees and livestream viewers experienced the 2018 Texas Tribune Festival. In-person attendees — more than 7,300 — enjoyed sweeping changes to the event including the reorientation to Austin’s iconic Congress Avenue, expanded programming from one full day to two, and the integration of “Open Congress,” a free and open to the public program.
