Texian market days

If you love Texas history — or want to learn more about it — don’t miss Texian Market Days October 26 at George Ranch Historical Park. It’s their largest living history event of the year!

This annual folk festival is a community fall favorite with something for everyone. The event brings history to life featuring first-person costumed interpreters, battle re-enactments, cattleworking demonstrations, vintage games, hands-on activities, live entertainment and food vendors. It’s your chance to explore and celebrate over 150 years of Texas history in a one-of-a-kind way that’s engaging for the whole family!

Kids will love learning about old-fashioned chores or playing vintage games! Adults will enjoy the opportunity to tour historic homes, live entertainment, and oh yeah, the new beer garden added for 2019!

“Texian Market Days has always been an amazing way to get an immersive perspective of this area’s history in a memorable, multi-sensory way,” Steve Nelson, 2019 festival co-chair told the Fort Bend Herald.

Nelson also promised the event would “put the ‘market’ back in Market Days” by increasing the number of vendors and food & beverage choices for the 2019 edition of the annual event.

The history-focused festival was founded in 1984 as a way to celebrate Texas history, fro the early pioneer days of the 1820s, all the way through World War II and beyond. More than 5,000 people attend the festival each year, with a large contingent of school children attending on Friday for a special field trip.

Tickets are $20 for adults; $15 seniors and $15 for kids 4-12. Those who are under 4 get in for free.

Hours are 9 am – 5 pm, Saturday, October 26.
