Hit the fun jackpot
 

Austin might be 1,300 miles from Vegas, but that doesn’t stop us from having just as much fun. The Fabulous TCTA Convention schedule is full of fun and engaging events, and evenings are free from scheduled activities, so you choose how to spend them! Take advantage of Austin’s live music scene, diverse restaurants, and unique culture. From a stroll through downtown for music or along South Congress for shopping, to an educational stop at a history or art museum, Austin has something for everyone.
