Wurstfest Brings the Old Country to the Hill Country

Posted on: September 19th, 2013 by admin No Comments

Since 1961, New Braunfels has been home to one of the biggest and best events in the state of Texas. The annual Wurstfest festival offers a unique blend of German heritage and Texan fun! It’s an opportunity for folks from far and wide to come together for great food, good beer and live entertainment from over 40 local, national and international performers.

10 days of Unrivaled Fun

Traditional German costumes, crafts, souvenirs, and delicacies rule the day in this Texas-style Oktoberfest. From carnival rides to polkas to sausage on a stick, there’s something here for everyone. Located on the spacious family-friendly and accessible Wurstfest grounds, the festival begins every year on the first Friday in November and runs for 10 days. This year, the fun will be raging from Friday, Nov. 1, through Sunday, Nov. 10. Several corresponding community events also spring up during that same time throughout New Braunfels.

Big Event for a Big State

Begun as a promotional event for the city’s sausage-making industry, Wurstfest has exploded into one of the largest and most exciting cultural events in the country. Fifty-two years after its humble beginning, Wurstfest is better than ever and was recently rated the No. 3 event in the state of Texas, behind only San Antonio’s annual Fiesta celebration and the Texas State Fair.
