How do I buy tickets?

If you attended last year’s event, you will notice some changes – for the better! Based on feedback from attendees and exhibitors alike, we have made the following adjustments to the festival to maximize the event experience for everyone. You can visit our Tickets page to learn more about tickets and find the link to select and purchase tickets.

  • No VIP tickets. This is so that we can maximize and offer the same customer experience to everyone. 
  • No Full Auto Friday. Some of the manufacturers exhibiting at the festival may still bring full auto firearms, but we will not dedicate a nighttime event to feature them. This eliminates any safety concerns and keeps ticket prices down so that more people can enjoy the entire festival experience.

Questions about our ADA Access and Accommodations?

The Texas Firearms Festival (TFF) grounds are wheelchair accessible, but please be aware that this is a large venue with substantial distances between bays and attractions.  Also, TFF is an outdoor festival located at a gun range, and therefore, most travel onsite will be over natural terrain.  TFF is a rain or shine event, and in the event of rain, mud is likely to appear in some places.

We do not provide personal care, golf carts or push service.  Please plan ahead and bring attendants if needed.  In addition, the Festival does not provide wheelchairs for rent or loan.  Wheelchairs, power wheelchairs, and three or four-wheeled scooters are allowed for use by patrons with mobility disabilities.  For safety reasons, personal golf carts and vehicles are not allowed on the festival grounds.

Accessible portalets are available at the ends of each row of restrooms located throughout the festival grounds.
