The Texas Exes Austin Chapter invites you to attend the 9th Annual Texas Independence Day Party! Below we’ve included some details on the event and more info on this year’s attractions, new shirt design, and ticket options! Tickets go on sale now!

Event Details

The family friendly party will be held on Saturday March 4, 2017 from 1PM to 4PM at the University Co-op Main Store’s back courtyard. The party is open to the public, so feel free to invite everyone including kids, students, pups, family, fellow Exes, and even your friends who didn’t go to UT – but maybe not your OU friends!

This year the party will be at the courtyard in between the University Main Store Co-op and the Co-op Parking Garage. Parking and Nostalgia will be free, with the Co-op garage available for use and the UT Tower across the street.


The Texas Spirits will be face painting, the Texas Singers will be attending, Curtis Lee and the 80h Project will be performing, and we'll be auctioning off a bunch of great UT related items! Additionally, we'll have plenty of activities for guests of all ages including a coloring contest for the kids and UT Trivia for the adults. Prizes for our contest, trivia, auction, and raffle winners will be givne out periodically throughout the event so come early, be loud, stay late, and wear orange.

Lastly, a ticket gets you free breakfast tacos provided by Jefe's food truck at the event along with free drinks!

New Shirt Design

We’re doing t-shirts again, but revamping the design. Make sure you order early and guarantee yourself a shirt! Images coming soon!

Ticket Options

Members only: $25 Early Bird Tickets Feb. 10th – Feb. 24th

As a privilege of being a Texas Ex, members are entitled to order during the early bird period. Ordering during the early bird period not only gets you a cheaper ticket ($25), but also gets you this year’s t-shirt for FREE! If you need a shirt size not listed, please purchase a ticket and shoot me an email!

After Feb.24th, all tickets will be set to $30. The price will stay at $30 leading up to the event and at the door. Unfortunately, t-shirts will no longer be free, but as always we’ll have extras for purchase at the event!
