What we do

The Pecan Street Association supports the Austin community by presenting Pecan Street Festival, the association donates its proceeds towards the preservation of historic 6th Street located in Downtown Austin, Texas.

Why us?

When Edwin Waller designed Austin’s street grid, he named north-south streets after Texas rivers and recommended numeric designations for east-west streets. Instead, they were named after trees.

Partners

Thanks to the tremendous support of our partners, the money raised during our event goes directly to support the Pecan Street Association's dutiful efforts to keep the 6th Street district a historical landmark for years to come.
