Plan to Attend Gruene Music & Wine Festival

Posted on: October 1st, 2013 by admin No Comments

Some revelers at a past Gruene Music & Wine Festival

Don’t miss the musical highlight of the year – The Gruene Music & Wine Festival Oct. 10-13 in the Gruene Historical District in New Braunfels.

This festival features four distinct events over the course of four days.

Live music on Thursday features Acoustic Jungle; on Friday (for which general admission tickets are already sold out but reserved tables remain available) it’s Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell; Saturday performers include Poor J. Brown, the Jeff Strahan Band, the Danny Brooks Band and Walt Wilkins & the Mystiqueros; and on Sunday it’s Gospel Brunch With A Texas Twist.

Background

The Fest began as a one-day event in 1987 with the purpose of promoting Texas and Americana music in a fun and relaxed setting while raising funds for the United Way of Comal County. Over the years, it has become a four-day celebration not only of Texas and Americana music, but also a celebration of Texas, German and New World wines, specialty beer, food and handcrafted items.

The event continues to grow each year. In recent years sponsors have been able to expand the “Texas Tasting & Tunes” event on Saturday to include over 40 wine & food producers for tastings and “Le Cordon Gruene,” a mini food truck park. To further advance Sunday’s “Texas Style Musicfest,” they have added a “Brew-n-Que” event with specialty beer tastings and barbecue, a second stage and the big game on two big screen TVs.

A Craft Market has also been added to both Saturday and Sunday events. In 2010, an entirely new “Not From Texas” kickoff event was added on Thursday featuring German and New World wines, live music and “Not From Texas” door prizes.

Last year the event raised a record-breaking sum of $125,199.32!

Event sponsors are Gruene Hall and 92.1 Radio, New Braunfels.
