The Walden's and Ralls

The Sahuarita Pecan Festival is a Southern Arizona tradition. With delicious foods from across the Santa Cruz River Valley and lots of great activities, it’s an event for the whole family.

In 2009, Farmers Investment Co./The Green Valley Pecan Company and the Walden family began hosting this annual event as a way to give back to the community and provide an affordable family outing for their neighbors and friends. Since its creation, the Sahuarita Pecan Festival has raised over $100,000, almost 7,000 pounds of food for local charities and averaged over 20,000 attendees each year.

The 11th Annual Sahuarita Pecan Festival is Saturday, November 9, 2019, 9AM to 5PM and will feature the popular Sahuarita Pecan Classic and Nut Run. Come for food, arts and crafts from the Santa Cruz River Valley and surrounding areas, great music, dancing and family-friendly activities. See you at the Festival!
