Red Poppy Festival
Seeds from poppies in Europe were sent to Georgetown right after World War I. Henry Purl Compton (known as “Okra”) who served in the American Expeditionary Forces sent them to his mother. She planted them at her home which is now 507 East 7th Street. From there, they were spread (by birds, bees, and people!) down the river and over much of Old Town. On April 25, 1990, Georgetown was certified by local residents and the Texas Legislature as the “Red Poppy Capital of Texas.”
Come out and enjoy a car & truck show, artisans, the festival parade and there will also be a kids fun zone and children's coloring contest and much more! There will be the Red Poppy 5K and eats as well.
