                The “Red Poppy Capital Of Texas,” Georgetown, Texas, will celebrate its 20th Annual Red Poppy Festival April 26 – 28, in honor of red poppy season; it is one of the few locations in the United States where red poppies grow naturally. Georgetown hosts a free, three-day festival to honor the history and beauty of its poppy season. The weekend includes parades, a car show, live music, cooking contest, art, food and family-friendly activities including the Kid’s Fun Zone with a bounce house, obstacle course, toddler playground and more. Country musician and a Lone Star favorite, Pat Green, will headline the festival as it marks its 20th anniversary. Additional concerts will take place Friday and Sunday nights.

                The town’s deep-rooted history with the poppies began when Henry Purl Compton (aka “Okra”), a soldier in the American Expeditionary Forces during WWI, sent poppy seeds from Europe back home to his mother in Georgetown, Texas. His mother planted the seeds at her home located at 507 East 7th St. and with some help from the birds, bees, and people of Georgetown, the seeds quickly spread beyond her home all over town. In 1990, Georgetown was certified by the Texas Legislature as the “Red Poppy Capital of Texas.” The town embraces the 20th anniversary celebrating the vivid blooming, with three days of live music and festivities, free and open to the public.
