Old Pecan Street Association has been around for over 30 years. It was started by a group of women to ensure that Old Pecan Street (6th Street) would continue to be remember by the city. They in turn created the Old Pecan Street Festival which started with a mere dozen booths and now has over 300 vendors every year. The Spring and the Fall show attract local artist from all over Austin and central Texas. Over 100,000 people attend the festivals yearly and all the profits from the festival
The Austin Creative Alliance is funded in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Development Department's Cultural Arts Division and by grants from Texas Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts which believes that a great nation deserves great art. The Creative Alliance also receives generous in-kind support from CreateAustin, and Time Warner Cable News. We are also grateful for the ongoing support and participation of our members and patrons.
