Join other firearms enthusiasts to TRY & BUY the latest and greatest guns and gear at this three-day festival. Ticket price includes admission and unlimited ammo all day Saturday and Sunday.
This year the Texas Firearms Festival is celebrating and honoring our men and women in blue and uniform with a special “Blue Sunday” on Sunday, October 16, including a Central Texas SWAT Team Challenge and a “Hero or Zero” competition for licensed law enforcement facilitated by ATX Precision & Carbine and Special Operations veteran Clay Hergert.
In its third year, the unique Festival provides a welcoming environment for all experience levels in the world of firearms – from the proficient hunter, to the hesitant homeowner seeking more information and familiarity. All tickets can be purchased online.
The Texas State Rifle Association, one of the event sponsors, will host educational and learn-to-shoot classes for beginners on both days. Individuals have the opportunity to purchase tickets that allow them to try exhibitor guns at the event, under the close supervision of manufacturer representatives and training safety officers.
Those who wish to try guns at the festival should purchase “shooter tickets,” which will give them access to over 20 dedicated firearms demonstration “try and buy” bays. Both shooter and non-shooter tickets will be able to browse a retail village that showcases the best in ammo and accessories.
VIP ticket holders gain earlier access into the festival each day at 9 a.m., and can also attend a separate “Full Auto Friday” event on October 14 that features automatic weapons. Individuals can purchase VIP tickets for either day or both days. In addition to earlier morning access and the features available to regular ticketholders, VIP attendees gain “Fast Pass” access to skip the line at each exhibitor bay by showing their VIP wristbands, and can access the VIP lounge to relax, utilize the complementary Wi-Fi and enjoy non-alcoholic beverages. VIP lounge guests also receive a complementary lunch from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day.
All attendees can purchase food from Austin’s finest food-truck cuisine and enjoy free parking, with preferred parking for VIP attendees on a first-come, first-serve basis. No alcohol beverages will be served, available for purchase or allowed into the event for any ticketholders.
Festival CEO Michelle Felkins emphasized that Festival organizers take no shortcuts when it comes to safety.
“We have always placed safety first at this festival, not just during the event itself, but in the mandatory training we require of our on-site safety officers, vendors and exhibitors prior to the festival,” said Felkins, citing their impeccable safety record over the last two years of the festival’s history.
Felkins reminds prospective attendees that all licensed gun owners who bring their firearms must keep them holstered at all times.
“We have a zero tolerance policy for attendees who don’t keep their firearms holstered,” she said.
