The Texas Rice Festival celebrates everything to do with rice and good times! For over 48 years, people have gathered for this event by the thousands to celebrate the rice harvest. Agriculture is the major part of the economy, and rice farms are plentiful. As field after field of rice bows to the harvesting machines each fall, locals and tourist alike crowd the Winnie-Stowell Park to enjoy the week long celebration. The annual event is held the first weekend in October and features non-stop live entertainment, carnival, parades, livestock shows, open horse show, BBQ cookoff, antique car show, rice cooking contest, rice education, pageants, and of course, lots of great food!
