“Texian Market Days is so great because it gives people of all ages something to enjoy and embrace. It makes history something real and something to talk about long after the event itself,” said Steve Nelson, 2017 Texian Market Days Co-Chairman and Fort Bend History Association Board Member.
The George Ranch Historical Park is located at 10215 FM 762 in Richmond. Festival admission at the gate is $15 for adults, $13 for seniors and $10 for children ages five to 15. Children four and under are free. Festival hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, October 21.
