34th Annual Burton Cotton Gin Festival

In almost every corner of Texas cotton has influenced our history. In Burton, halfway between Houston & Austin on Hwy 290, sits the 1914 Burton Farmers Gin, the Oldest Operating Cotton Gin in America. Our surrounding fields may no longer be white with cotton bolls, but we still preserve that history for future generations. Step back in time with us at the 34th Annual Burton Cotton Gin Festival, Sat. April 15th, 2023.

This gem of a small town Texas festival is FREE & family friendly. It features a parade, music, contests, games, arts, crafts, food, drink, & antique tractor pull & engine & classic car shows.
Tours of the Gin structure will be conducted from 1-3 PM & at 3 PM the 1914 Burton Farmers Gin will come to life, and a bale of cotton will be ginned.
Join in the fun & watch Texas history come alive at the 33rd Annual Burton Cotton Gin Festival, Sat. April 15th, 2023 at the Texas Cotton Gin Museum, in Burton. For more information visit www.texascottonginmuseum.org, or call 979-289-3378 with questions.

Flown the Coop Grand Reopening

Flown The Coop is reopening it’s retail location in Burton! This will be an ALL DAY event on March 25th. Our doors first opened eight years ago on March 25, 2015. After 4 years of being closed to open back up, and we’re opening in a BIG WAY!
The day will start off with a ribbon cutting at 9am. To celebrate we have music by Danielle Reich and little bites for you to enjoy as you experience the new Flown The Coop retail.
There will be drawings and giveaways all day long! Keeping with tradition, we are hosting a back yard bash starting at 7pm. We missed these parties in our back yard. It truly feels like a scene from a movie with folks pulling up with their chairs and coolers to enjoy music and community under the stars! The duo Les Cousins will preform on our backyard stage.
The Shriners will serving food to raise money for their organization. As always, it’s BYOB and Chairs!
