More than 250 groundbreaking thinkers, lawmakers, community leaders and industry experts from across Texas and beyond will participate in the eighth annual Texas Tribune Festival Sept. 27-29, 2018, in Austin, Texas. In order to accommodate the overwhelming public interest in the Festival, which attracted nearly 5,000 attendees in 2017, the event is relocating to the heart of downtown Austin.

The Texas Tribune Festival and the city share the same values: healthy civil discourse, innovation, tolerance, justice, curiosity and empowerment. The event will expand from one full day to two, and diverse perspectives, inspiring conversations and civil discussions will flow up and down Austin’s iconic Congress Avenue right up to the steps of the Texas Capitol. The move also will support an expanded free program aimed to bring more locals, business leaders and tourists into the conversation.

The Festival expansion comes as a response to attendees’ requests for more time with the program. The Fest will kick off Wednesday, Sept. 26, with the popular conversation and dinner event at Franklin BBQ. The official program will begin Thursday, Sept. 27, with a much-anticipated evening keynote address. Full days on Friday, Sept. 28, and Saturday, Sept. 29, will offer inspiring ideas, big-thinking civil debates, dynamic networking opportunities, student programming, podcast recordings and more. This will be punctuated with Friday night’s TribFeast, the formal fundraising dinner to support nonprofit journalism that brings together thought leaders, philanthropists from across the state, elected officials, policymakers and big-brand journalists to support The Texas Tribune’s ambitious, award-winning work. The Festival will come to a close the evening of Saturday, Sept. 29, with a lively closing keynote address and fun party.
