The Katy Rice Harvest Festival is a huge and very important economic annual event for the City of Katy and a major contributor to local merchant’s economy. This year the Festival will be held on Saturday October 13, 2011 from 10:00 AM until midnight and on Sunday October 14 from noon until 6:00 PM. This marks the 32 annual Rice Harvest Festival. This event has once again been named as one of the top 10 festivals in the whole Houston area. Originally this Festivalwas named a "Sellabration" and was intended to bring the community together to educate folks about the rice industry and let the area farmers show the local citizens what they could do for the general public living in the Katy area. This year it is expected that the Festival will draw 50-60 thousand folks to the downtown Katy area over the course of the weekend.
The Festival is held in Historic downtown Katy which is approximately 28 miles west of downtown Houston. Originally the City of Katy is an old city as it was formed after being a train stop along the route going from San Antonio to Houston back in the early 1890’s.
The Rice Festival will cover Avenues B and C and First, 2nd streets which are about 1 mile north of I-10. Ticket prices for admission (excluding the Carnival) are $8.00 per person per day. Children that are ages 9 and under are admitted free of charge. Military, law enforcement and EMS personnel will be admitted with proper ID free of charge. Senior’s age 65 plus are also admitted free of charge. This is really a cheap price for a great function and that is loaded with fun. Events include all day entertainment on two stages, arts and crafts with over 300 booths, numerous food booths, rice cooking contest, and a carnival. Pets on a leash are allowed inside the festival.
The carnival requires the purchase of an armband for $20/day/person/day.
Parking is free of charge at the Katy Mills Mall. A free shuttle service will be provided to and from the parking area. Please click here for a map of where to park.
The Rice Festival is a very family oriented event. Proceeds from the festival will be used by the City of Katy for fireworks display and will benefit various local schools.
