POLY BIG Virtual FUN 2018!!


Bastrop Barracks are under contstrucation and we won't be able to do an on-site PBF this year. Instead We'll have a distributed PBF in 4 cities (+ Dallas if someone volunteers to host) on November 10th 2018. Each host will determine the specifics for that city, but there will be shared food, discussions, and possibly an evening party. Additionally the cities will all be video conferenced together and there will be a track of shared presentations including Joreth Innkeeper and Franklin Veaux.

Joreth discovered the term 'polyamory' back in 1998 when it suddenly dawned on her that she was terrible at monogamy. She spent the next two decades as a poly community organizer, activist, advice columnist, movie reviewer, media trainer, internet flame warrior, the Chairman of Media Acquistions for the Polyamory Archive Collection at the Kinsey Institute, and herder of poly cats. Joreth uses she/her pronouns and masculine titles.

Franklin Veaux is part mad scientist, part gonzo journalist. He's been polyamorous his entire life, and has never been in a monogamous relationship. He writes books, designs high-tech sex toys, and plays with cats.

There will be locations in Houston, Austin, San Anontio, Portland. Tickets are $10 if purchased before September 30th and $15 after. Ticket sales will be coming shortly. 




Welcome to the home of Poly Big Fun!


Poly Big Fun or PBF is a yearly late spring retreat sponsored by the Poly Austin community. PBF is a time for us to come together as a community and celebrate. We hold multiple workshops on various relationship building topics such as effective communication, time management and relationships, multifamily households, community parenting, and more.




            If you are new or even returning to PBF please take a moment and read the PBF Survival Guide. The survival guide is a basic “getting to know you” guide for the event. The survival guide explains basic stuff like what to expect, what to bring, and what to wear. !!!     We encourage you to look around the new website. The menu for the event, schedule of workshops, and updated survival guide are being revised but should be correct soon.


Note: Bastrop might be renovating the cabins sometime in 2017 which could affect Poly Big Fun. If  it does we'll notify you immediately. They have told us this the last several years and it has yet to happen.
