Wild + Free Frisco, TX

February 15-16, 2019 | Dr. Pepper Arena

Texas, ya'll! We're coming back to the Lone Star state for a gathering like no other. Join this beautiful homeschool community of women at the Dr. Pepper Arena for two days of insight, inspiration, and community.

We may not all homeschool the same, but we're in this together. This time, under one roof, as Wild + Free mamas come from all over the country to join us. Everything may be bigger in Texas, but it'll be just as sweet.

On Fathers and Children:

Sorry papas and kiddos, this is a women-only event. While we affirm the role of fathers in homeschooling and we LOVE children, this event is for women only (nursing infants are welcome). Refunds are not offered for mistaken purchases.

On the Size of this Event:

We plan to continue hosting events in smaller venues. However, our last conference sold-out in three days and we need to better serve the Wild + Free community. We believe you'll love the beautiful experience we're planning, but if you'd rather attend a smaller gathering, stay tuned for future events.

On Matters of Faith:

Some of our presenters are people of faith, others are not. Everyone is welcome, but we realize this event might not be the right fit for those who want an exclusively faith-based event or those who want an exclusively secular event.

On Volunteers:

We're looking for some servant-hearted women who love to have fun but aren't afraid of hard work and would enjoy helping us create a welcoming experience. This is a great opportunity for a Wild + Free group to come and do something meaningful together. You'll get to experience much of the event and enjoy some other fun perks. If you're interested in learning more, send us an email.

On Wild + Free Group Leaders:

If you're a Wild + Free group leader and would like to bring your group, we have a special VIP experience planned just for you. Email our Wild + Free groups coordinator Brit Chambers for more information: brit@bewildandfree.org

On Coming Alone:

This is a welcoming community, and you're sure to meet kindred spirits. But this is the perfect opportunity to come with friends or invite your Wild + Free group.

On Food and Beverages:

Outside food and beverages are not permitted inside the arena. However, you can purchase food from concessions or restaurants near the venue. Arena security will check bags for safety. Medications and baby bottles are permitted, of course.

On Cancellations and Refunds:

Tickets are transferable but non-refundable. You can transfer them to any other woman if you're not able to attend. Simply look for buyers at #wildandfreefrisco and transfer your ticket to the purchaser with instructions provided on the ticket.

On Parking and Hotels:

Parking is available at the Dr. Pepper Arena garage for $15 for both days (mention Wild + Free when you enter the garage), or you can park at your nearby hotel.

Wild + Free Frisco Sponsorships

We have a several sponsorship packages available for organizations that are looking to share their offerings with the Wild + Free Frisco attendees and support the event. Please email us for more information!
