The West Fort Bend Management District is proud to announce the 2017 Pecan Harvest Festival to be held in Historic Downtown Richmond on Sunday, November 19 from Noon – 8 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. A hayride will transport attendees to event features ranging from outdoor artisan Vendors, Farmers Market, Beer & Wine Garden, Baking Contest, to a Classic Car Show.
Texas A&M AgriLife Extension in Fort Bend County is heading up the pecan education portion of the Richmond Pecan Harvest Festival. Attendees will find 40+ varieties of pecans, submitted by many of the established pecan growers of Fort Bend County, as well as the Ft. Bend County Pecan Show awards display! The pecan education portion of the Festival is graciously supported by a local partnership with 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 as experienced at last year’s inaugural event by more than 3,000 in attendance. This year, the event will be expanding along Morton Street and including Historic Downtown Richmond’s local merchants!
We invite you to join us! Pack up your picnic blanket, and bring the entire family to our second annual Pecan Harvest Festival of Richmond, Texas.
