*RAIN OR SHINE!* 

*FREE!*

Now in our 43rd year of the Pecan Street Festival (“PSF”) — with 42 spring fests and 39 fall fests under our belt — we would be bringing Texans our 81st festival to date, but no more…(FALL FESIVAL: Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 19th & 20th, 2020 (11am-10pm Sat./11am-8pm Sun.). The PSF is the largest, and longest-running, of Texas’ arts/crafts and music festivals. It draws nearly 300 local and national arts, crafts and food vendors, +/-50 musical acts and a quarter-million attendees during the weekend. PSF is also FREE; the ONLY large-scale festival around that can boast this!

The Pecan Street Association (“PSA”), the non-profit behind the festival, gives back to the community via donations to local non-profits and historical education/preservation of Pecan Street (aka Sixth St.).

We will be returning to our traditional layout with booths in the middle of the street (thank you AFD!)

We will have a wonderful array of food, vendors, offering festival-goers pottery, printmaking, pen and acrylic work, hand blown glass, jewelry, assemblage art and carnival rides for the kids & more. Vendors are selected from the best locally and nationally.

The music and performing line-up is posted

Our featured artist is Fernando Muñoz.  He is designing the festival poster/t-shirts graphic, and his booth will be adjacent to the PSA “Merch Booth” tent at Sixth St. & Trinity.

We will be implementing an “online festival” in the next few weeks, so stay tuned to shop and listen online!
