It's time once again for one of Austin's most beloved festivals, the Pecan Street Festival, which is coming up on September 28 and 29, 2013. The largest arts and crafts festival in central Texas, the Pecan Street Festival boasts over 275 artists, artisans, food vendors, and three stages of live music. The Festival is family-friendly, offering interactive workshops for kids, a petting zoo, face painting, magicians, and festival-inspired rides. It is also a dog-friendly event; pups are welcome!
Festival goers can find a variety of art mediums including paintings, sculpture, woodwork, metalwork, photography, apparel, glass art, stonework, pottery, knitting, candles, jewelry, and more. Come for the art, come for the children's activities, or come for the music.
The Pecan Street Festival takes place on Sixth Street (which was originally named Pecan Street by Edwin Waller), from Brazos to I-35. The festival runs from 11 a.m. - 10 p.m. on Saturday, September 28, and 11 a.m. - 8 p.m. on Sunday, September 29. It is free and open to the public. Fees for children's activities vary.
Live music begins at noon on both days and stages are located between 6th Street and 7th Street on Neches, Trinity, and Red River. See Saturday's line-up here and Sunday's here.
