2016 Conferences, Workshops, and Festivals: Texas and Louisiana List

2016 Conferences, Workshops, and Festivals: This list is specific to Texas and Louisiana. 

I will try to provide a broader national list in a few days. Please feel free to comment with any you would like to see added to this list or the national one I am working to complete. 

Anyone know of any in other countries besides the US? Please feel free to comment with those as well. You never know when an opportunity will arise. Right? :-)
