The Pecan Street Festival attracts thousands of locals and visitors each year and raises money for Austin area non-profits. Every conceivable opportunity for family-friendly revelry and merriment is abundant at the festival. Enjoy live music, food, circus/street performances, art demonstrations, inflatable amusement for kids, face painting, ogling the latest gadgets and automobiles, artisan goods to eat, wear or admire, free samples, and great handmade shopping. If revelry and merriment aren’t your thing, you’re still in for some great people watching.
