Fall Pecan Street Festival
If you’ve never heard of this event, you’re probably wondering what a “pecan festival” is all about. Well, this festival isn’t about pecans, per se. Instead, it is a huge celebration of art and music in honor of “Pecan Street” in Austin, TX. (Pecan Street was the original name of what is known today as 6th Street in Austin).
So, how huge is it? The Pecan Street Festival is identified as “one of the largest and longest-running arts/crafts and music festivals in the nation”! This exciting two-day event is held in Austin twice each year: in May and in September. When it occurs, people flock from near and far to join in on the fun. When you visit, you’ll find hundreds of artisans with original artistic creations made from metal, fiber, clay, wood, glass, leather, stone, and various repurposed materials.
This festival is presented by The Pecan Street Association, a nonprofit in the Austin community. Since 2006, this association has helped the community by donating proceeds from the festival toward preserving the historic 6th Street area in Downtown Austin. Donations go to multiple nonprofits and municipal-aid organizations including Mobiles Leaves & Fishes, Austin Pets Alive, and the Capitol Area Food Bank.
