The Texas Pinball Festival started in 2001 in Arlington as “Pinarama”, not much more than a few collectors and hobbyists getting together to show off their games. In 2003, we moved the show to a Holiday Inn in Irving and held the show in the fall. It quickly grew bigger. In 2007, we moved the show to the 15,000+ square foot ball room of the Grapevine Hilton. In 2013, we moved to the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, with 45,000 square feet and become one of the largest shows in the U.S.
This year, we’re delighted to be at the Embassy Suites Dallas – Frisco Hotel and Convention Center in Frisco once again, with 40,000 square feet of space.
