Special Evening Event

The Space Cowboy Ball

SPACE PARTY- AWARDS

Sat. Nov. 16, 2019 @ 7 PM, Bullock Texas State History Museum

Join us as we and our Celebrity Master of Ceremonies Cas Anvar (Captain of the Rocinante on “the Expanse”) honour the year’s best science fiction movies and TV shows at a cool and very special event, featuring artists, musicians, food and dance. We will also honour one of Texas’s top space educators and have a very special guest TBA (last year it was Jeff Bezos!)

It’s 2119. You’re invited to a formal affair at a space colony on the Moon or Mars. What on Earth (or space) will you wear? The first three Space Cowboy Balls were a rousing success. The 2019 edition will be a must-attend event of both the space and Austin celebrity year.

Space has been too boring for too long. We are committed to both the technology and culture of tomorrow. From tux to tech, all are welcome to our celebration of the future. It’s a little like a second Halloween, this time for grown ups, space geeks and cos play gamers. From the Expanse to Serenity, Star Wars to Star Trek, and all the best science fiction futures in between, come join us on a micro-Burning Man rocket ride. We’ll give out some awards, eat some great barbeque and then we Party!

Venue and Location

The Bullock Texas State History Museum

We’re thrilled to be holding this year’s events at the Bullock Texas State History Museum, an amazing venue that will surely elevate the event to new levels. It is a legendary icon, with three stories of galleries, a spiral staircase, and a Grand Lobby for the Space Cowboy Ball, an IMAX theater, and many other amenities and event spaces. During our events, the museum will also be featuring two highly relevant exhibits, Beyond Planet Earth and Cowboys in Space.
