Held at The University of Texas at Austin, the Texas Tribune Festival makes use of the unique campus setting to let attendees explore the historic grounds of the 40 acres. Whether by registering for a walking tour of the LBJ Presidential Library and Museum or the Harry Ransom Center’s archival vaults, or simply by attending the Friday night party on the plaza under the UT Tower, all Festival attendees will have the chance to explore one of the great state institutions.
