Gruene Hall rocks in October

Posted on: October 21st, 2011 by Bryan No Comments

Gruene Hall is well-known in Texas for bringing local and nationally recognized artists to our own backyard. And the historic music venue was recognized by USA Today as a great place to be in October. The wine and music festival just passed, and there are other big names and free shows coming up this month.

Check out the full schedule for tickets and show times to see Lyle Lovett, Raul Malo and more country and rock bands. Many of these shows are free with no cover to get in.

And Texas’ oldest dance hall doesn’t have live entertainment just in October. Talented musicians come through Gruene year round and groups like Asleep at the Wheel, Roger Creager and Kevin Fowler will be performing soon.

The venue is located only about 10 minutes away from Hill Country RV Resort and Cottage Rentals, so stay with us and experience the live music of Gruene Hall again, or for the first time if you’ve never been.

Bastrop Benefit

Posted on: October 14th, 2011 by Bryan No Comments

The drought has affected many Texans, from farmers raising cattle and crops to homeowners trying to maintain their backyards. The citizens of Bastrop, located west of Austin, have gone through an especially hard time after the forest fires that burned through 34,000 acres. Almost 1600 people lost their homes and belongings to the fires, and New Braunfels is supporting them in a big way tomorrow night.

If you’re staying with us or will be visiting the area, the Red Rooster Cafe will host a Bastrop Fire Benefit from 5 to 10 p.m. tomorrow, Saturday October 15. The dinner buffet is $13.99 for adults and $6.99 for kids and these proceeds will all go to victims of the fire.

There will also be live music, dancing and door prizes so bring the whole family out to have some fun and most importantly, support a good cause. Click here for more information and be sure to make your reservation at Hill Country RV Resort and Cottage Rentals.

A Taste of Fall

Posted on: October 7th, 2011 by Bryan No Comments

We wrote about the Come and Taste It music and wine tasting series this summer, and it’s back again for a special fall series going through November. This free series combines some of the best local wines and musicians around, and the Hill Country is known for both.

The series will take place at The Grapevine wine bar in Gruene every Thursday from October 13 through November 10. Come out from 5 to 8 p.m. on the outdoor patio for live music and tastings from a different winery each week.

Jazz guitarist Ryan Waguespack will be back for the series, and appetizers are available from the winery, or bring in to-go food from nearby restaurants.

When you come here to try new wines, listen to new music and experience all the fall events Gruene and New Braunfels have to offer, come stay with us at Hill Country RV Resort and Cottage Rentals.

Wurstfest is one of New Braunfel’s biggest events, and has celebrated German culture for over 50 years. This year’s festival will run from November 4-13 and will include all the traditional dancing, music, food and drinks as well as a new addition.

The new building, named Stelzenhaus “stilt house” in a naming contest will open in time for the festival and add an additional dance floor and full kitchen to the event.

Wurstfest has grown tremendously in recent years so if you plan on going to the event, reserve your cottage or RV site now while we still have availability at Hill Country RV Resort & Cottage Rentals.

And when you stay at our park, you won’t have to worry about getting to the festival or finding a parking spot. The Wurst Wagen will stop at our park and shuttle to the fest, just call the line before you’re ready to head to the event or make a reservation on the will call line.

If you do decide to drive to the festival, our park is less than 10 minutes away from the Wurstfest grounds. Reserve your RV site or cottage today before they fill up! And we’ll post more information closer to the festival date.
