36th Annual Fall Pecan Street Festival Sep 24-25 2016
Why is Pecan Street festival celebrated on Sixth Street?
Originally, Edwin Waller designed Austin’s street grid, he named north-south streets after Texas rivers and recommended numeric designations for east-west streets. Instead, they were named after trees.
That decision was later reversed, and they were renamed with numbers. Though Pecan Street became Sixth Street, the festival honors its original name.
Sponsored by nonprofit, Pecan Street Association and all of the proceeds go towards the preservation of historic 6th Street located in Downtown Austin, Texas.

"Michelle began working with us while we were still in RI, 12 months before we arrived in TX. Once we were here, she presented a raft of good properties we toured and researched, including a home in Georgetown we ended up buying. Michelle was unfailingly responsive, thorough, and helpful. She was even better during the p&s and closing phases, with wise counsel, grasp of subtleties that would have escaped us, and a strong protectiveness of our interests. She's a superb realtor, more a friend by the end, and we would recommend her highly to anyone searching for a home in central TX."
