August 28-29, 2021

For 2021, the Austin Area Train Show moves to the Palmer Event Center in Austin proper. They will have a LOT of room there, making this an event worth waiting for . . . Our space will be a 24 x 21 island. There will be room to use the stanchions if we decide to do so.

The hours are typical for a train show: 10 to 6 on Saturday, 10 to 4 on Sunday.

Setup is noon to 9 on Friday and 8 to 10 on Saturday. Teardown is 4 to 7 on Sunday. There is a drive-up loading dock, but vehicles are not allowed on the ramp . . . we can walk up, or push a cart. There is a good amount of free parking for exhibitors, and huge amounts of paid parking if you are slow to take advantage of the free spaces.

Contact Steve Jackson if you want to display - or if you want to participate without displaying, for that matter!
