Pecan Street Festival

Austin, TX 78701

About Us:

The Pecan Street Festival is a free two-day arts festival held twice yearly in downtown Austin's Sixth Street Historic District. Taking place the first weekend in May and the last weekend in September, the juried festival attracts hundreds of local and national artisans offering original handcrafted creations in a variety of mediums, from metal, wood, fiber, clay, leather, glass and stone to repurposed materials of all kinds.

Like Austin itself, Pecan Street Festival attendees are diverse. Some come to buy art, others come for the food or the music, but they all come to take part in a tradition that is 100 percent Austin and has been known for more than three decades as a great way to spend a weekend. The festival has been managed by Special Events Live since 2006.

- More than 60 of Austin's top musical acts, from up-and-comers to renowned veterans, perform on three stages, located on Trinity, Neches and Red River streets.

- Thirty food venders located throughout the festival offer both indulgent and healthy options from funnel cakes and turkey legs to smoothies.

- Kid-friendly activities include rides, a petting zoo, face-painting, interactive workshops, street magicians and more.
