Homestead Heritage Day

Homestead Heritage Day is held annually the second Saturday of February.

Many of the different eras of Texas’ fascinating history are showcased at this festival. The Redbud Hill Homestead comes alive with old-fashioned, hands-on activities for kids, period re-enactments, and a bustling, filled-to-the-brim day complete with re-enactors, historians, and volunteers.

At Homestead Heritage Day, held the second Saturday in February, and Pioneer Day, held the second Saturday in November, visitors can travel back in time by making corn husk dolls, bonnets, lye soap, beeswax candles, and much more. See how the early inhabitants of Texas made and used their tools and weapons. A skirmish provides a living-history look at the authentic weaponry, costumes, and significance of Civil War battles. Volunteers and staff show visitors how early settlers built and protected their homesteads. You might even get to taste some authentic pioneer cooking!
