Each year, thousands of people from Texas and beyond gather at The Texas Tribune Festival to explore the state’s — and the nation’s — biggest challenges. Now in its eighth year, the Festival is headed to downtown Austin on historic Congress Avenue, under the shadow of the Capitol. The Texas Tribune invites you to listen and learn from more than 250 leading figures in politics and public policy. Beyond panel discussions and one-on-one interviews, participants will engage in thoughtful, civil discussion about our state’s next steps.
