Tesla CEO Elon Musk has reaffirmed Giga Texas will follow in the footsteps of Giga Berlin and welcome guests and visitors early next year.
In a Sunday afternoon tweet, Musk said the new factory will play host to a grand opening party “in early 2022.” The CEO added that there will also be factory tours for party-goers, similar to what happened at the Giga Berlin-Brandenburg County Fair.

In October Tesla fans in Germany were able to get an up-close look at Giga Berlin. The company put together a detailed factory tour and for the first time showed off a Model Y with a 4680 structural battery pack.
While it is exciting news, this isn’t the first time Musk has talked about a Giga Texas party. Soon after the party in Germany, Musk said “hell yeah” to the idea of a similar event in Austin.
Unfortunately Musk provided no new details about the party, except a vague timeline which could put the party on the calendar anywhere between January 1 and March or April, 2022.
We also don’t know how fans will be able to secure tickets, but it will likely be similar to Giga Berlin where you had to pre-register, but it wasn’t a guarantee that you would get one.
Hopefully the party will be open to include Canadians, as we have heard from many who are interested in making the drive down to see Tesla’s newest factory.
