The award-winning Denton Redbud Festival has been promoting community beautification and Denton pride since 1994. This year, the typical Redbud Festival that features dozens of vendors with tree and plant sales, gardening supplies, household items and local/handmade products, along with family-friendly activities and live, local music has been canceled. Be sure to check out our alternative redbud activities.
The Redbud Festival traces its roots back to an annual Texas Woman's University Festival that was held from the 1930s until 1981 to celebrate the school's beautification and tree planting efforts.
In 1994, Keep Denton Beautiful gave the festival new life in honor of Denton's designation as the "Redbud Capital of Texas."
