Visiting East Texas & Piney Woods

Communities throughout the Piney Woods region of East Texas maintain the spirit of the South while offering visitors plenty of small-town charm. From Canton and Mount Pleasant, east of Dallas, all the way south to Brenham and Orange, a variety of special events, festivals and activities make spring and summer the time to visit.

Spring is the time to be outside in Tyler – April and May days are cool and dry before the late-summer humidity stakes its claim on the land. Experience some of the best music, food, and beverages Tyler has to offer during the 2015 Red Dirt BBQ Festival on May 2nd. The grills get fired up at noon in the Downtown Square.

Start training now for the 2015 Weekend Warrior Race 5K Obstacle Run. Welcoming all fitness levels, the event will feature individual and team races with nine exciting and challenging obstacles along the course’s rugged terrain. The race starts at 8:30 a.m. at Camp Tyler, near Whitehouse.

The east Texas community of Nacogdoches – also known as the largest producer of Blueberries in Texas – celebrates the summer with a day of kids’ rides, arts and crafts, live music, a classic car show, and more as part of the 2015 Texas Blueberry Festival. Hosted in downtown Nacogdoches, the fun starts at 8 a.m. on June 13th.

Less than an hour northwest, Jacksonville hosts a fruit festival of its own on the very same day. The 2015 Tomato Fest celebrates the versatile fruit with activities like a salsa eating contest, peeling contests, vendors, entertainment, live music, and more at the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce.

The skies over Longview are filled with vibrant colors and the sound of music this spring and summer. Catch regional and national blues acts across two stages when the 2015 T-Bone Walker Blues Fest comes to the Maude Cobb Activity Center, June 5th and 6th. The festivities are also set to feature a classic car show, food vendors, and more. The fun starts at 5:30 p.m.

Then it’s time for the 2015 Great Texas Balloon Race. Competitive pilots take to the skies while grounded spectators enjoy a week's worth of concerts and special events, starting July 26th, with various launch and landing sites spread throughout Longview and Kilgore.
