Sahuarita Pecan Festival
Date: Saturday and Sunday, November 20 and 21, 2010

Time: 9 am – 4 pm

Location/Parking: 1625 East Sahuarita Road, Sahuarita, AZ 85629
Just east of Nogales Highway on Sahuarita Road. The Festival will be held in the large area in front of the FICO/Green Valley Pecan processing plant and Store.

Admission Cost: FREE (but make sure to bring money for the Festival attractions, arts & crafts and food) 

FICO and Green Valley Pecan Company have a strong record of giving back to the community and community service is a key element of the Sahuarita Pecan Festival. Each year, the Sahuarita Pecan Festival will select three nonprofit beneficiaries to receive a portion of the event’s proceeds.

This year, FICO and Green Valley Pecan Company have selected the Green Valley-Sahuarita Community Food Bank and Friends of Madera Canyon as the first two beneficiaries. The third beneficiary, the Animal League of Green Valley, was selected by a community vote in July.

The organizations will receive a portion of the event's proceeds through the following activities:

Green Valley-Sahuarita Community Food Bank: will receive all of the proceeds from the Festival hayride. Attendees will once again have the option of paying for the hayride or bringing non-perishable food donation as a payment.

Friends of Madera Canyon: will receive a portion of the registration fees from the running events.

The Animal League of Green Valley: will host a wishing wells fundraiser at the event with photos of shelter dogs and cats tagged with their stated wishes (i.e. food, training, spay and neuter, a loving home). Well wishers will receive a special memento from TALGV.
