Cotton Gin Festival

In almost every corner of Texas, cotton has influenced our history. In Burton, halfway between Houston and Austin on State Highway 290, sits the 1914 Burton Farmers Gin, the oldest operating cotton gin in America. The surrounding fields may no longer be white with cotton bolls, but the gin still preserves that history for future generations. Step back in time at the 33rd annual Burton Cotton Gin Festival and enjoy a parade, music, contests, games, arts, crafts, food, drink, tractor pull, antique engine, and tractor and classic car shows.

When:

April 23

Where:

Texas Cotton Gin Museum BURTON, Texas
