THE BIG RED BARN 20TH ANNIVERSARY PECAN FEST EVENT LIVE A MEMORY, MAKE A MEMORY
THU. AUG. 17, 2023
Take the downtown trolley or park for free at the Red Barn to start your day of memories! Live a memory in the 110- year-old farm home, tee-pee or log cabin, where volunteers will show you how they cooked, worked and played. Make a memory in the blacksmith shop during a steel-forging or rope-making demonstration. Live a memory at the authentic General Store to see antique goods that were traded for items, or added to ledgers settled after harvest season. Make a memory by competing in the annual pecan baking contest or NEW doggie costume contest.
Imagine life as a Ranger in the 1800s in the reconstructed Seguin Texas Ranger Station. Listen to lessons from a wooden desk in one of our school houses. Hear German and English hymns echo around the historic chapel. Imagine gas attendants filling your tank outside the Texaco Gas Station.
