Texian Market Days

COVID-19 Update:

It is with heavy hearts that we must announce the cancellation of this year’s Texian Market Days festival, which was scheduled for October 23 and 24. Each year, thousands of visitors, re-enactors, vendors, volunteers and staff members join together for the living history festival, which raises funds to support the Fort Bend History Association’s mission of preserving and sharing Texas history. This year, it’s essential that we join together instead to keep our community safe in these historic times – and though we won’t be able to celebrate Texian Market Days in person, our commitment to sharing, educating and inspiring our community through Texas history will continue!

We will be so excited to welcome you back for Texian Market Days on October 22 and 23, 2021. Until then, we hope you will be able to join us for safe and socially-distanced tours here at the Park and our sister site, the Fort Bend Museum.

Thank you for your understanding – and for your love and support of Texas and Fort Bend County history!

Save the Date!
