Visiting East Texas & Piney Woods

Explore the East Texas Piney Woods region's unique geography at destinations like the Big Thicket National Preserve, Caddo Lake and Sam Rayburn Reservoir. And discover the warm hospitality of East Texas in friendly communities from Cleveland in the south of the region to Carthage in the north.

September’s Gregg County Fair and Exposition in Longview showcases the best of Texas livestock, agriculture and fun. Held September 6th through the 14th, the 2013 fair is the 64th year. Presented by the Longview Jaycees, enjoy the Safari Petting Zoo, show-me swine races, and midway games and rides.

16 miles southwest of Caddo Lake, the East Texas community of Marshall enjoys its oldest festival the second Saturday in October. The 2013 Fireant Festival is October 12th featuring beautiful fall weather, friendly East Texas hospitality, and plenty of family fun. Now celebrating its 31st year, Marshall’s Fireant Festival fills downtown streets with the Boogie Woogie music program among the events.

An evening at the Rodeo is a must for Texas visitors. The Rusk County Rodeo Association presents their annual PCA Dodge Series Rodeo October 17th through 19th. Join the 2013 excitement with authentic Texas rodeo at the Rusk County Expo Center. Bring the family, kids get into the action with the calf scramble and wild goose chase.

The holidays are special and even more so with a visit to East Texas. Nacogdoches Nine Flags Christmas Festival honors the community’s heritage as the oldest town in Texas. 2013 marks the 17th Annual Nine Flags Festival and runs from November 23rd to December 14th. The Nacogdoches Junior Forum hosts Holiday in the Pines, launching the festivities. From the Tour de Nac and the Jingle Bell 5K to the Lighted Parade and Christmas in the Plaza, Nacogdoches makes a great holiday family getaway.

Gun Barrel City, 60 miles southeast of Dallas on Cedar Creek Reservoir, hosts its annual Christmas Festival the first Saturday of December. The festivities begin with the Gun Barrel City Holiday Parade with Santa atop the fire engine. Launch your 2013 holidays in Gun Barrel City December 7th.
