Festival Info

The Big Texas Beer Fest is Dallas’ original beer festival. The 2019 event is the 8th annual and happens March 29-30 at the Fair Park Automobile Building. This year’s festival features beers from 100+ breweries and 450+ beers.

BTBF is well-known as the festival to go to for exclusive/rare beers, one-offs and special firkins. Since brewers never know when beers will be ready, we always release the beer list a week before the event. Grab your tickets now, as they have always sold out in advance.

As you might expect, typically at least 1/3 of our brewers are from Texas. We have brewers from across the United States, and Internationally too.

Plenty of food will be available from one of our many food trucks, or local artisanal food vendors. While you eat, listen to local music acts on our outdoor stage!
