Patrons with Mobility Limitations

The Texas Firearms Festival (TFF) grounds are wheelchair accessible, but please be aware that this is a large venue with substantial distances between bays and attractions. Also, TFF is an outdoor festival located at a gun range, and therefore, most travel onsite will be over natural terrain. TFF is a rain or shine event, and in the event of rain, mud is likely to appear in some places.

We do not provide personal care, golf carts or push service. Please plan ahead and bring attendants if needed. In addition, the Festival does not provide wheelchairs for rent or loan. Wheelchairs, power wheelchairs, and three or four-wheeled scooters are allowed for use by patrons with mobility disabilities. For safety reasons, personal golf carts and vehicles are not allowed on the festival grounds.

Accessible portalets are available at the ends of each row of restrooms located throughout the festival grounds.
