The annual Wells Branch Pioneer Festival celebrates Texas history Saturday, April 27, Noon – 5pm. The Pioneer Festival is centered around the historic Gault Homestead, the 1850s-era cabin in Katherine Fleischer Park and will feature fun and educational activities throughout the day so residents can experience a taste of life in 19th Century Texas.
There will be lots of FREE FUN for the whole family. Free pony rides, a petting zoo, photos with a Texas Longhorn and live music. Free demonstrations and exhibits include weavers, spinners, corn shelling, syrup making and butter churning, antique bikes, and antique coins, just to name a few. There will also be fun things for the kids to make and take.
This year, Pioneer Fest will feature a special appearance from award-winning story teller Donna Ingham. Make sure to be there between 1:30 and 2:30pm inside the Homestead to hear some of the best stories of Texas history you’ll ever hear! Thank you, Wells Branch Community Library for this contribution. More about Donna Ingham.
In addition, refreshments offered by the Wells Branch MUD and the Wells Branch Soccer Assn. will be available for purchase. There will be roasted corn, turkey legs, funnel cakes, hot dogs, sausage wraps and cold drinks.
If you would like to volunteer or have a craft or activity from that period for demonstration, contact Virginia Almon at 512-633-0253 or email@example.com.
Bring the whole family and join us for a day of living history right in our own backyards!
