Pecan Capital Trade Day is a wonderful "1st Saturday" tradition that has lasted for decades around the Courthouse Square, in historic downtown. The City of San Saba was given the project in April 2008 and it has continued to grow and provide food, fun, and fellowship. Since then, the booth space fees have been twenty dollars for a 10 x 10 space and all of the proceeds benefit a different non-profit organization each month.
Tony Guidroz, Director of Economic Development and Tourism for the city, will roll out a new fee structure beginning on the July 4th Pecan Capital Trade Day. The fee will now be collected on a "sliding scale". Mr. Guidroz stated that if you don't sell anything, you won't owe anything; and of what you do sell, you will only pay 10% up to twenty dollars. For example, if you make fifty dollars, you pay five dollars; if you make one hundred dollars, you pay ten dollars. The goal of Pecan Capital Trade Day is to have a fun filled event that will attract visitors to San Saba who will spend money in our shops, eat in our restaurants, play 18 holes at the San Saba River Golf Course, take in all of our attractions, enjoy the San Saba River, and stay at our hotels and RV parks. As an added bonus, the City of San Saba will waive the fee for a single booth space for a May 30th edition of Pecan Capital Trade Day to coincide with the Pecan Capital Street Dance featuring Jake Hooker and the Outsiders, free to the public that night from 8 to midnight. If you want more than one space on that day, it will work on the sliding scale, but only one space is free! We are so blessed to live in such a wonderful city. Let's continue to work together to make San Saba a place we can all be proud of. You can contact Tony Guidroz at 325-372-8291 or visit www.sansabatexas.com.
