Thrills, chills and girl power are heading to the Palmer Events Center in Austin this summer for the epic Final Girl Festival at the Palmer Events Center.

What is a "Final Girl"?

A "final girl" is a movie trope in horror movies.

It refers to the last girl or woman alive to confront the killer, ostensibly the one left to tell the story.

There have been many great final girls throughout the decades, but I think my favorites will forever be Laurie Strode from the Halloween franchise and Sidney Prescott from the Scream franchsie.
