Take the whole family to Austin’s annual Fall Pecan Street Festival in the historic 6th Street district downtown on Saturday, Sept. 27 from 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 28 from 11 a.m. – 8 p.m. This free event includes over 275 arts and crafts vendors from all over the world, more than 60 local musicians, over 30 food vendors, and fun activities for the kids.


The Pecan Street Festival has been an Austin tradition for the last 30 years, with events held every first weekend in May and every last weekend in September. This festival brings thousands of locals and visitors downtown while also raising money for local non-profits. In 2013, the festival organizers distributed nearly $20,000 to area organizations!
