Posted on: October 28th, 2013 by admin No Comments

Friday, Nov. 1, marks the start of one of the most popular events in the state of Texas: the 10-day-long festival in New Braunfels known as WURSTFEST.

The annual WURSTFEST festival offers a unique blend of German heritage and Texan fun and provides great food, good beer and live entertainment from over 40 local, national and international performers.

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. WURSTFEST is held in the spacious family-friendly and accessible the festival grounds at Landa Park and at many special events throughout New Braunfels and Comal County.

Rated No. 3 in Texas

WURSTFEST was started in 1961 to promote the city’s sausage-making industry. It has grown to become the No. 3-rated event in the state, trailing San Antonio’s annual Fiesta celebration and the Texas State Fair.
