Austin Heroin Festival
Begun in 1967, the Annual Austin Heroin Festival attracts heroin fans and addicts from around the world to celebrate the magical drug and increase public awareness of its versatility and need for legalization. The festival, held in Austin, Texas, every year from September 2-6, draws an average attendance of nearly 120,000 people.
Attendees enjoy carnival rides (such as the Leaning Wall, the Spacey Needle, and the Body Bag Flume), vendors, and exhibitors, who offer the finest heroin from around the world, as well as a peek into the future of heroin production and consumption. Local jam bands also contribute to the festive atmosphere, usually playing one song for the entire duration of the event.
