WHAT IS TEXAS FRIGHTMARE WEEKEND?
Texas Frightmare Weekend is a three day horror convention in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex which had it’s premiere event in 2006. The event has been presented by Arrow Video since 2012. True to its motto, “The Southwest’s Premier Horror Convention”, our goal is to provide fans with an unrivaled experience by celebrating all aspects of genre films. Texas Frightmare Weekend hosts celebrity appearances, autograph signings, screenings, exclusive parties and horror memorabilia vendors from all over the country. The event is also extremely proud to have featured the rising talents of many Texas “Frightmakers” in screenings, panel discussions and Q & A’s.
In 2023 the event will move to the Irving Convention Center & Toyota Music Factory to make room for its growing fan base.
After humble beginnings at the tiny Grapevine Convention Center in Grapevine, TX, TFW (as it has begun to be called by attendees) is arguably the largest horror convention in the nation. The event draws thousands of attendees annually and has hosted genre legends such as Neve Campbell, Matthew Lillard, Brad Dourif, Danny Trejo, George A. Romero, Clive Barker, Malcom McDowell, Robert Englund, John Carpenter, Tobe Hooper, Cary Elwes and hundreds more.
