As the capital of Texas, the city of Austin is rich in history and culture and at any time of the year you can find a host of fantastic things to do, places to eat, events to take in and fun things to see. Coming up September 27-28, 2014 is the Fall Pecan Street Festival and if you haven’t had the chance to catch this great event, now is the time!
The Pecan Street Festival is a two-day extravaganza that actually happens twice a year in downtown Austin’s Sixth Street Historic District. It is a juried arts and crafts festival that features more than 275 local and national artisan vendors who display and sell fantastic original handcrafted creations of all different kinds. This popular festival has brought new visitors and returning fans for over thirty years and this year definitely will not disappoint.
Several stages will host over 60 of the finest musical acts that call Austin their home, thirty different food vendors will be offering the best festival food around and the variety of family friendly activities will keep everyone at any age entertained. Plus, did we mention that it is all free?! To top it all off, the Old Pecan Street Association donates a portion of the festival proceeds to several local non-profit groups, which just adds to the reasons you should attend this great event.

Whether you would like a private, deluxe cabin, a restored house that was once a historic landmark or a modern house downtown, there is a place where you will feel at home.
