Pecan Harvest Festival to be Held in Historic Downtown Richmond

The West Fort Bend Management District and the City of Richmond are proud to announce this annual event happening on Sunday, November 18th from 11 am to 6 pm, which highlights the rich history of pecans in Fort Bend County, while simultaneously showcasing the unique features of Historic Downtown Richmond.

The festival’s Kidz Zone will be nestled in historic Decker Park, while live music entertains all day from Wessendorff Park’s Gazebo. Festival attendees can stroll along the trails from Second Street around historic Morton Cemetery near Wessendorff Park. An old-fashioned hayride will expose riders to the Historic District of Richmond. The festival features artisan vendors, a farmer’s market, a beer and wine garden, a baking contest and a classic car show.

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension is hosting the Pecan Education portion of the festival, including interactive agricultural exhibits and the Fort Bend County Pecan Show. Attendees will find 40+ varieties of award-winning pecans submitted by pecan growers of Fort Bend. The pecan education portion of the festival is graciously supported by a partnership with the Texas Pecan Growers Association and Fort Bend County Farm Bureau, cooperatively investing in agricultural education.

The festival is a family-friendly event, which uniquely introduces Richmond’s charm, as experienced by the more than 5000 in attendance last year. Bring the entire family for good old-fashioned fun.
