The good times are ready to roll at the Green Valley Pecan Company’s tenth annual Sahuarita Pecan Festival from 9 a.m – 5 p.m. on Saturday, November 10.

Roam the grounds of the property for food, great music, dancing, family-friendly activities, wagon rides, tractor pulls, arts and crafts from the Santa Cruz River Valley and surrounding areas, and so much more.

All in all, it’s going to be a nutty time.

“We’re honoring the contributions of farmers this year and we’re excited to invite the community to celebrate with us,” said Paula Beemer, Sahuarita Pecan Festival Coordinator.

There are going to be a few contests throughout the day, too, if you’re feeling competitive. You can run through the pecan orchard during the Pecan Classic/Nut Run or Family Fun Run, test your might during the Pecan Cracking Contest, or show off your baking skills at the Pecan Pie Contest.
