The West Fort Bend Management District is proud to announce the 2018 Pecan Harvest Festival to be held in Historic Downtown Richmond on Sunday, November 18 from 11 AM - 6 PM.
We are excited to present this annual event which highlights the rich history of pecans in Fort Bend County while simultaneously showcasing the unique features of Historic Downtown Richmond. The festival’s beloved Kidz Zone will be nestled in historic Decker Park while live music entertains all day from Wessendorff Park’s acoustically designed Gazebo. Festival attendees can stroll along the newly completed trails from Second St. around historic Morton Cemetery at edge of Wessendorff Park. An old-fashioned hayride will expose riders to the Historic District of Richmond, while the Festival features Artisan Vendors, Farmers Market, a Beer & Wine Garden, a Baking Contest, and a Classic Car Show.
Texas A&M AgriLife Extension is hosting the Pecan Education portion of the Richmond Pecan Harvest Festival, including interactive agricultural exhibits and the Fort Bend County Pecan Show. Attendees will find 40+ varieties of award winning pecans, submitted by many of the established pecan growers of Fort Bend County. The pecan education portion of the Festival is graciously supported by a local partnership with Texas Pecan Growers Association and Fort Bend County Farm Bureau, cooperatively investing in agricultural education.
The Pecan Harvest Festival is a family friendly event which uniquely introduces Richmond’s charm including Historic Downtown merchants, as experienced by more than 5,000 in attendance last year! We invite you to join us! Bring the entire family to our third annual Pecan Harvest Festival of Richmond, Texas.
