Thirty - Fourth Annual Rice Harvest Festival in Katy



The Katy Rice Harvest Festival has been in the past and will continue into the future a huge and extremely important economic annual event for the City of Katy and a major contributor to local merchant’s economic year. The Festival will be held on Saturday October 11, 2014 from 10:00 AM until midnight and on Sunday October 12, 2014 from noon until 6:00 PM. This marks the 34TH annual Rice Harvest Festival. This event has been named as one of the top 10 festivals in the whole Houston area for several years. Originally this Festival was named a "Sellabration" and was intended to bring the community together for the purpose of educating the populace about the rice industry and let the area farmers show the local citizens what they were doing for the benefit of the general public living in the Katy area. This year as last year it is expected that the Festival will draw 50-60 thousand folks to the downtown Katy area over the course of the weekend. It will be crowded.
