Heritage Syrup Festival


Henderson is proud to host the only folk life festival in East Texas. The Heritage Syrup Festival is always celebrated the second Saturday in November from 9:00am-5:00pm.  Beginning in November 1989,  this unique fall festival is centered around the making of sugarcane syrup.

The 7 acre grounds of the Depot Museum and the 10 blocks in the National Register Historic Downtown District are the locations of this event.

A bustling center of activity featuring old time syrup making with mule power,  craftsmen and folk artist as well as outstanding food vendors, retail vendors, musical entertainment, children’s activities, antique tractors, antique & classic cars, cloggers and square dancers complete this fun filled day.

A hayride shuttle sponsored by the Rusk County 4-H Club transports visitors between the Depot and downtown.

Approximately 25,000 people from Texas and neighboring states attend the festival each year.
