Texas-Size Pecan

The huge nut on the Courthouse lawn is a popular place for taking photos. Made of concrete but looking quite realistic, it honors a major local industry. Crops can reach up to 3 million pounds of pecans, making this county one of the nation's leading producers. Guadalupe County growers helped to pioneer the now-popular nut, which Spanish explorers encountered in this area hundreds of years ago. Some of the earliest pecan orchards were planted in nearby river bottoms, and local specimens were used in upgrading cultivated varieties. The Guadalupe Valley Pecan Growers Association, founded here, is one of the oldest such groups in the state.


October 28-30, 2016

Pecan Fest Heritage Days is an opportunity to break out of your shell, go a little nuts, and harvest a good time.  The weekend long celebration is spread out over all of Seguin and as a celebration of all things pecan and all things Seguin.  You can not separate Seguin from the pecan; being the home of the World’s Largest Pecan, three of them actually, is a sense of pride for our community and has made Seguin a must-see stop for thousands of visitors every year.
