(Seguin) -- Celebrate all things pecan and all things Seguin at Pecan Fest Heritage Days. Home of the world's largest pecan, Seguin has been a favorite to locals and a must see stop for thousands of visitors and the weekend long event celebrates our famous nut. The celebration is spread out all over Seguin and includes celebrations of Seguin's heritage and history. Pecan Fest Heritage Days has a little something for everyone, for the foodie nut to the shopping nut to the history nut.
Part of the celebration includes Seguin Main Street's Trade Days where vendors showcase and sell their merchandise during Trade Days on Saturday, Oct. 27 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Applications are being accepting for vendors selling art, crafts, jewelry, food, furniture, yard decor, and of course pecans! A bonus to getting involved is if your items are anything pecan related, the booth space will be entirely free.
Seguin Main Street is also seeking non-profit organizations to host kid's activities during Pecan Fest on Saturday, October 27.
Organizations interested hosting will receive a free booth space. Activities can include games, crafts, and giveaways all focused on fun for children at the event.
"Thousands of people will be in Seguin for the weekend's activities and they will be making their way through downtown and Central Park shopping with our over 80 vendors," said Kyle Kramm, Main Street & CVB Director, "We are getting close to being sold out of booth spaces, so vendors need to contact us soon to reserve their spot."
If you are interested in being a vendor or hosting a kids activity booth, you can find the application at <https://www.seguintexas.gov/departments/main_street/> or call (830) 401-5000 for more information.
