COVID-19 Information

The health and welfare of all Texas Frightmare Weekend attendees is our utmost priority. We are closely monitoring the situation involving the coronavirus outbreak. Texas Frightmare Weekend is doing our part to make sure that our convention is safe for all who attend. Besides several safety measures listed below, we have also greatly reduced the amount of tickets sold over previous years. Additionally, we have moved several key sources of past years’ congestion issues.

  • We have greatly reduced the amount of tickets available for purchase by approximately 50% over last year’s ticket sales.
  • Our largest, main screening and panel room has been moved to another level of the hotel. It is now located in the Innovation room (by the pool, where the VIP party was in 2019)
  • Will Call for pre-ordered TFW Convention Tickets and Merchandise: Moved upstairs to the Debakey room.
  • Enterprise Room: Guest and vendors tables have been expanded in to the former area where screenings were located in 2019.

A full map of all event locations will be available in our printed program at the event.

Please consider the health and safety of yourselves and others around you.
