Event Summary
The Red Poppy Festival in Georgetown, TX will have you dancing in the streets! Who could resist, with free concerts providing live music from three stages at the corners of the Georgetown Square? Over 65,000 visitors stroll through streets of arts and crafts booths and enjoy the tastes of Texas from our fabulous food court. The Saturday morning parade is sure to captivate the cheering crowds while our annual car show is fun for kids, both young and old! The Red Poppy Festival is a wonderful Central Texas Tradition just minutes from Austin. There's music, dancing, and a whole lot of fun for the entire family!

On April 25, 1990, Georgetown was certified by local residents and the Texas Legislature as the “Red Poppy Capital of Texas.” Red Poppies have been a part of Georgetown’s landscape for over seventy years and have grown naturally in street and highway right-of-ways, in vacant lots and parks lands, and in native and cultivated areas of our citizen’s yards. Georgetown is one of the few locations in the United States where Red Poppies reseed themselves annually. Each April as the Poppies bloom, Georgetown celebrates with our Annual Red Poppy Festival.
