Pecan Street Festival Austin May 4-5

The largest arts and crafts festival in Central Texas, 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 Saturday & Sunday in May and the 2nd to last Saturday & Sunday in September, the juried Festival attracts hundreds of local and national artisans and offers original handcrafted creations in a variety of mediums – from metalwork, woodwork, 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% Austin and has been known for over forty years as a great way to spend a weekend with friends / family.

The Allen Arts Festival, organized by the Allen Arts Alliance returns every  year to Watter’s Creek at Montgomery Farm in Allen, Texas during the second full weekend in May. 2019 marks the 11th year of the festival.
