San Saba River Pecan Jam on October 22, 2011!
San Saba, Texas! The Pecan Capital of the World and the birthplace of the paper shell pecan.
Come celebrate our rich Texas heritage at The San Saba River Pecan Jam festival. Nestled under canopies of native pecan trees alongside the beautiful San Saba River, Pecan Jam, a Go Texan event, highlights Texas music, Texas wines, Texas foods and Texas products.
San Saba combines the best of small town Texas—a picturesque town square, an acclaimed 18-hole public golf course, an expansive public park system and friendly folks, making San Saba a perfect getaway. Long known to sportsmen, San Saba is the gateway to the Top of the Hill Country, offering panoramic vistas, vast areas of pecan orchards, historic buildings and New World vineyards. Construction is underway for the new San Saba Nature Park, linking San Saba as the northern entrance to the lower Colorado River Basin and Colorado River Trails system.
View our event map and participating wineries, Go Texan vendors and sponsors. The Pecan Jam schedule of events provides activities and entertainment for all ages, including the retail San Saba pecan businesses under one roof, Enchanted Orchard for kids, non-stop Texas music, cooking seminars by Terry Thompson-Anderson, Kevin Wenzel of Wiseman Chocolate House, pecan equipment demonstrations, winemaker panels, Go Texan vendors and much more.
Ray Benson and Asleep at the Wheel headline the Texas Music Soundstage, with gates opening at 9:30 AM. No Coolers Please.
